Speaking during an interview with Sky Sports, Lukaku hailed Osimhen who is currently on Top of Serie A scorers chart as well as their coach Luciano Spaletti.

” [Luciano] Spalletti has done a great job, we have to say,” Lukaku said.

“They [Napoli] have really strong players. I’ve been out and seen many of their games. Napoli are in a good moment. Osimhen scores many goals, [Piotr] Zielinski is well, Kvara [Khvicha Kvaratskhelia], on the left, [Hirving] Lozano or [Matteo] Politano on the right.

“Osimhen is really strong. Now he’s the best striker. We have to be honest. He’s strong and he’s doing really well for Napoli. They are first in the standings. We have respect, but not fear”.
