Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has been widely compared to the two-African Footballer of the Year Didier Drogba.
And now the former Lille star man, who has been an admirer of Drogba since his early years in Lagos, is looking forward to meeting the Chelsea legend.
The Super Eagles striker says he relishes and awaits the dream of meeting the four-time Premier League champion.
“Drogba would forever be my idol and I’m so grateful to him,” Osimhen told Caf website. “Choosing him as a role model has really been helpful since my growing up years.
“I have not met him yet and I’m really looking forward to seeing him and getting one of his signed jerseys; that would really be a dream come true for me.
“Now, playing in a club that used to have Diego Maradona, who is undoubtedly one of the greatest players ever, is inspiring.
‘’Maradona is an idol here in Napoli and I have seen his pictures everywhere. He is truly the best. To be here and to play on the same pitch of Maradona is another dream came true.”
