Apollo Heyes reports for Football Italia that Brentford midfielder Frank Onyeka underlined Napoli star Victor Osimhen’s strong mentality and discussed the idea of seeing him in the Premier League this summer.


The 25-year-old Nigerian striker is widely expected to leave the Partenopei in a high-profile transfer this summer. At the end of last year, he signed a new contract with the defending Serie A champions that contains a €120-130m release clause.


Osimhen has continued to shine despite Napoli’s chaos this term, netting 11 goals and providing three assists across 16 league matches. He has attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.


Speaking to Sky Sports UK, Onyeka was asked what it was like to play with Osimhen in the Nigeria squad at the Africa Cup of Nations and if he could join him at Brentford.


“No, no, no! He’s too expensive! He’s a really good guy, but he wants to win. He doesn’t like to lose, even in training. He always wants to push the players around him and try to encourage them. He’s a fighter.


“He’s always there to help the team and fight for the team. Even when the team is down, he’ll be the first man to push the team. He never gives up. For me, he was one of the best players in the tournament, but people don’t really see what he does.


“Hopefully he comes to the Premier League.”
