Victor Osimhen overthrows Lautaro Martínez as he wins highest goal scorer award in Serie A, breaks new record

Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, has won the highest goal scorer award in Italian Serie A.

The Super Eagles star made history as the first African to be crowned the award and also the first player to have combined such with the Scudetto since 2009.

Records also indicates that Osimhen is the fourth Napoli player to win the award, joining the league of legendary Diego Maradona and Edison Cavani and Gonzalo Higuain.

Wonder9ja reports that Napoli won the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years.

For the latest award, Osimhen’s closest rival is Inter Milan striker and Argentine forward, Lautaro Martinez, who fired blanks in the club’s victory against Torino last Saturday night.

Martinez is on 21 goals and cannot go beyond that tally, while Osimhen is too far out in front on 25 goals.

Former Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the last player to combine both the Scudetto and the top scorer award for Inter Milan in 2008/09.
