Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr says a move to Serie A club Napoli will provide an opportunity for Victor Osimhen to further develop as a player, reports Completesports.com.
Osimhen, 21, is currently negotiating a move to the Italian club with the Pernotopei ready to offer him a five-year contract.
The young striker enjoyed a successful debut campaign with Ligue 1 club Lille where he scored 18 goals and recorded six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.
Napoli are desperate to bring in the former VFL Wolsfburg of Germany forward as replacement for Arkadiusz Milik who is set to leave the club this summer.
Rohr said he expects Osimhen to take this chance.
