Henry Wants Osimhen To Play In Premier League


Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says he would like to see Victor Osimhen play in the  Premier League next season.

Osimhen is expected to leave Serie A champions Napoli this summer.

The forward’s goal in Napoli’s 1-1 draw with Barcelona caught Henry’s attention and the Frenchman has advised the Nigerian to move to England at the end of the season.

“I think he needed that today,” Henry said on CBS Sports Champions League programme.

“At the AFCON, we saw he can lead the line, he runs into the channels, he can hold the ball, and he is clever to understand how to roll defenders. I do think that he needed that goal.

“How good can he be? He showed last year what he could do, he won African Player of the Year along the way winning what he won with Napoli, even though he did not win the final against Ivory Coast with Nigeria.

“I would like to see what he can do in the Prem (Premier League) or Paris-Saint Germain. I don’t know where he is going to go, but I want to see him doing it every year. He did what he did to win the title at Napoli after the big man Diego Armando Maradona and it is something that will stay forever in history.”
