“Osimhen is a striker who has the ability to transform every ball that comes his way into chances,” Spalletti told the club’s website.
“He is a generous player who runs a lot and every now and then this intense race can cause him some mistakes, but he is an important player, complete and we aim a lot on him.”
He scored 10 goals and recorded three assists in league appearances for Napoli last season.
Luciano Spalleti’s will face Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in their next friendly next weekend.
