Ola Aina has supported his Super Eagles teammate Victor Osimhen to fight for the Serie A top scorer award this season.
Osimhen has been impressive for Napoli so far this season after struggling last season.
The 22-year-old has found the back of the net four times in six league appearances.
And he has scored seven goals in eight outings in all competitions this season for Luciano Spalletti’s team.

And Aina, who plays for Torino in the Italian top flight, says Osimhen has overcome his problems from last season.
Aina said on Brila FM: “I think he can do it very well, the first season was to stop and start for him, difficult, everything about COVID.
“But I think this season, as you can see, he has recovered and I think he can do very well in the league and can challenge the top scorer of the season.”
Aina and Osimhen are expected to be in action for the Eagles when they face the Central African Republic, in the Group C qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup on Thursday in Lagos.
They will then travel to Douala, Cameroon, for the reverse match.
The Eagles lead the group with six points after winning their first two games against Liberia and Cape Verde.
