Nigeria international and Napoli goal poacher Victor Osimhen, leads the number of goals scored by strikers from open play in the Italian Serie A for the year 2022 not taking goals scored from the penalty spot into his account.
Osimhen has been exceptional since he arrived in the Italian League from French Ligue side Lille in 2020 and has turned into a prolific striker for Napoli.
With 18 goals, the highest by any player in the Serie A in 2022, the 23-year-old 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. Related News

Nine of his goals have arrived during the 2022/2023 campaign, making him the top in Serie A this season.
Osimhen’s goals have been against Monza, Verona, Bologna, Roma, Sassuolo, Atalanta, and Udinese
