The Crotone man did imply that he would be looking to score more than the 20 goals he collected this past season.

“Personally, I don’t set goals. The only thing I set out for myself at the start of the season every year is just to do better than I did last time. So that means that next year will be more difficult for me because now I have to do better than I did this year,” he said.

He continues to acknowledge the presents of his team-mates, Osimhen aside, there are also William Troost-Ekong, Ola Aina, and Victor Moses. Obi, whose Chievo Verna are involved in the promotion playoffs, could potentially return and add to that number.

“I’m glad now we’re growing. When I came only Joel was here, with Orji Okonkwo also in Bologna, but not playing so much. Then we had a couple of lads in the Serie B. But now we are growing and I’m looking forward to meeting all the guys next year in the Serie A,” Nwankwo said.
