Osimhen winning streak continues with another award in Serie A

Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has been crowned the player of the month of March for Napoli by the club's staff, players and fans.

The Nigerian talisman was exceptional for the Partenopeans in March in their short-lived time atop the Serie A table this season. His four goals scored in the month's three games were all the goals scored by the club, and it sent the Naples club top of the league.

This is his third award this season, having won the Serie A player of the month of March and the EA Sports player of the month of March in the Serie A previously.

Osimhen has netted 12 goals in the league for Napoli, and despite missing three months with a facial injury, is still the club's highest goalscorer this season.

The Partenopeans currently sit in third place in the Serie A, four points off leaders AC Milan with five games left. They can mathematically win the Serie A to break their 32-year trophy drought.

Osimhen and his goals could play a significant role in the final stages and the awards will surely spur him on to achieve more in the five games left.

Trabzonspor scouting Henry Onyekuru to replace Anthony Nwakaeme

Elsewhere, Trabzonspor have identified another Nigerian, Henry Onyekuru, to replace their star Nigerian striker, Anthony Nwakaeme.

The 33-year-old Nwakaeme is out of a contract at the club in June, but has done them a great service with his 11 goals and ten assists pushing them to a first Turkish Super Lig title since 1983/84.

Contractual disagreements between Nwakaeme and the club could see the striker leave in the summer, and the club are already looking for a replacement.

Former Galatasaray man Onyekuru could be returning to the Turkish Super Lig from Greek club Olympiacos according to reports from Turkey.

Onyekuru is struggling in Greece, with no goal contributions in 14 games at the club. However, he has a good record in Turkey and understands the scene well enough.

He could make the switch to the Trabzon club while 30-year-old Turkey international and long-term Olympiacos target Yunus Mallı moves the other way.
