Leading Italian sports newspaper, Corriere dello Sport, has predicted Victor Osimhen will become a Goal Machine under Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti.
After a disappointing start in the new Serie A season no thanks to his red card, Osimhen, who scored 10 goals last season, showed he means business with two well-taken goals in the UEFA Europa League at Leicester City last week.
The newspaper has now recorded how under Spalletti several strikers have shone.
In the 1997/98 season, Carmine Esposito finished the season at Empoli with 14 goals with the Napoli coach in charge then.
At Roma, the coach, who favours the 4-2-3-1 formation, made Francisco Totti a Goal Machine as a false 9.
In one season, Totti scored 26 goals.
Spalletti did same magic with Eden Dzeko at Roma, before he got Mauro Icardi to score 29 goals at Inter Milan.
In Russia, Spalletti made sure Kherzhakov fired 23 goals for Zenit St.Petersburg in 2012.
