Victor Osimhen says former African Footballer of the Year Didier Drogba would forever be his idol, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen earned rave reviews after scoring 18 goals and provided six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions for Ligue 1 club Lille last season.

The 21-year-old was named Lille’s player of the year and also scooped the best African Player in Ligue 1 prize.

His impressive performance caught the attention of Serie A club Napoli, who signed him in a big money move from Lille.
