“He (Osimhen) is a potential that can still be improved and made more profitable for the team,” Spaletti said.

“Osimhen has healthy selfishness of a centre forward who shoots as soon as he sees the goal and a physically overwhelming power that he expresses above all with his head and this characteristic is very popular in the Premier League.

“But I hope that in the end, no indecent proposal arrives at Napoli, so that I can shape this raw jewel, to make it shine even more because technically he still needs to improve.

“I hope to coach him for a long time.”
