The 24-year-old striker has been in blistering form this season, scoring an impressive 19 goals in just 21 league matches.
His performances have catapulted him to world-class status and made him the most sought-after striker in the world.
Osimhen's record-breaking run of scoring in 8-straight Serie A games, a feat that no other Napoli player has achieved, has made him the talk of the football world.
Not only that, he is now the youngest player to score in 8 consecutive Serie A games alongside Roberto Muzzi.
The recent award is just one in a series of global recognitions for Osimhen, who earlier this year won the Power Horse Emerging Player of The Year award from Dubai Globe Soccer.
Napoli took to Twitter to celebrate Osimhen's incredible achievement, confirming his win over competition from Gavi for the emerging player of the year award.
