Osimhen beats Salah again, ranked sixth most valuable player in the world


By Adadareporters

Nigeria Super Eagles and SSC Napoli forward Victor Osimhen has been named amongst other superstars with Mohamed Salah missing in the top 25 most valuable players list according to a report from Spanish media outlet Marca.

The latest ranking comes just weeks after CIES Football Observatory also ranked Osimhen as the player with the highest market value in Africa.

The 24-year-old has been rated as the sixth most valuable player in the world per Marca.

In the report published on their website, the Nigeria Super Eagles striker is said to have a value of 120 million euros.

Osimhen has become a hero in Naples following an outstanding and historic campaign with his club Napoli. He was at the heart of everything good as Napoli ended a 33-year wait for Serie A glory last season.

The Super Eagles star had his most productive season in club football after leading the club to glory with 26 goals to his name.

The former LOSC Lille forward was also named as Serie A’s best striker, becoming the first-ever African in the league’s 125-year history to achieve the feat.

Osimhen also proved decisive as Nigeria booked a place in next year’s AFCON, with the striker leading the chart in the qualifiers with seven goals to his name.

Two of those goals were scored in Nigeria’s last outing against Sierra Leone.

Meanwhile, Manchester City star Erling Haaland headline the list of five players ahead of Nigeria’s Osimhen. Haaland is ranked at the top of the list with a value of 180 million euros.

The City forward leads Kylian Mbappe, Vinicius Junior, Jude Bellingham and British-Nigerian forward, Bukayo Saka, who is tied with Osimhen but ranked fifth with a value of 120 million euros.
