'Osimhen looks a lot like Drogba' – Signori compares ‘good’ Napoli striker to ex-Chelsea hero

The former Italy international talked up the talent of the Nigerian striker after seeing him net a brace against Leicester City on Thursday

Ex-Italy striker Giuseppe Signori has drawn comparisons between "good" Napoli striker Victor Osimhen and former Chelsea hero Didier Drogba.

The Nigeria international accentuated his importance to the Parthenopeans having scored a brace in the Serie A outfit’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City in Thursday’s Europa League fixture.

The Premier League side lead by two goals at the King Power Stadium courtesy of Ayoze Perez and Harvey Barnes, but Luciano Spalletti’s men left England on a no winner, no vanquished note as the former Lille star found the net twice in the closing stages of the keenly contested encounter.
