Osimhen tops Serie A 2022 scorers chart

Nigerian international, Victor Osimhen is the leading goal scorer from open play in the Italian Serie A for the year 2022.

The Super Eagles forward has made himself a prolific striker for Napoli since arriving in the Italian League from French Ligue side, Lille, in 2020.

He scored 18 goals, the highest by any player in the top flight of Italian football, Serie A, in 2022.

The 23-year-old goal-poacher leads the list of highest goals scored in the year under review.

Lazio’s Ciro Immobile is the top marksman in Serie A in 2022 with 20 goals. But six of the Italy international’s goals came from the penalty spot, leaving him with 14 spotless strikes.

Third on the chart is Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, with 17 goals for the year. The forward was part of the Argentina squad that lifted the FIFA World Cup in Qatar a few days ago.

Osimhen, who is considered the best in the division, has seen nine of his goals arrive during the 2022/2023 campaign, making him the top in Serie A this season.
