Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has been named as the fastest player in the Serie A in the last round of matches, matchday nine, according to reports.

Area Napoli says the former Lille star recorded the fastest speed in the Italian top-flight during the meeting between AS Roma and Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Sunday evening.

Osimhen reached a top speed of 34.69 km/h to place first in the division ahead of Juventus right-back, Danilo and Udinese defender, Nahuel Molina, who clocked 34.27 km/h and 33.84 km/h respectively.

The speed record in this season’s Serie A belongs to an African player, Spezia Calcio’s Angola international center forward, M’Bala Nzola, who reached a speed of 35.56 km / h on matchday six.

Blessed with pace and physicality, Osimhen has been able to justify his 70-million-euro price tag in the new season after an indifferent maiden campaign with the Blues.

The 22-year-old has appeared in all the matches played by Napoli in the Serie A with the exception of the 2-1 win at Genoa, scoring five goals.

And he has impressed more in Europe with four goals in three matches – one of which he started.
