Victor Osimhen made big move to Napoli from Lille in June this year and the Nigerian has been shining in pre-season games for the Italian side.
His impressive performances for Lille made Napoli chiefs to pay massive cash for his signature ahead of the coming League season in Italy.
Napoli will be facing Parma in their first game of the season and their first tough away fixture of the season will be against Juventus.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been in great form for Juventus for the past two seasons since he joined from Real Madrid winning the League title twice.

“I’m really looking forward to a new career here in Serie A. Playing against the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo is something one can eagerly wait for.
“While at Lille, I had the opportunity of playing against some of the best players in the world like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and it would definitely be a whole great experience to play against Ronaldo, who is one of the greatest player on earth.
“So, I’m looking forward to facing him soon,'' Osimhen told cafonline.com according to Complete Sports.
