In a testament to their exceptional talent and goal-scoring prowess, Nigerian strikers Victor Osimhen and Victor Boniface have earned coveted spots on SPORTbible’s list of the top 10 best strikers in the world. Excluding the duo, only Lautaro Martinez and Julian Alvarez feature as compatriots on this illustrious list, highlighting the remarkable achievement of the Nigerian forwards.

Victor Osimhen:

Renowned as one of the most sought-after strikers globally, Victor Osimhen’s stellar performances have garnered widespread acclaim.


The recipient of the 2023 African Footballer of the Year award, Osimhen dazzled spectators with his exceptional goal-scoring abilities during Napoli’s triumphant 2022/23 campaign, where the club clinched the league title for the first time in over three decades. Notably, Osimhen concluded the season as the league’s top scorer, notching an impressive tally of 26 goals.

Although his current season with Napoli has seen the team face challenges, Osimhen remains a coveted asset in the transfer market. Reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Chelsea is among the frontrunners vying for the signature of the Super Eagles striker, with the Blues reportedly prepared to activate his €130m release clause at the end of the season.

Victor Boniface:

At just 23 years old, Victor Boniface has emerged as one of the most lethal forwards in the game. His remarkable record of 16 goals and eight assists for Bayer Leverkusen underscores his importance to the team’s success. Despite facing a setback due to injury, Boniface’s impact on Xabi Alonso’s side has been undeniable, with his contributions instrumental in Bayer Leverkusen’s pursuit of their first Bundesliga title.

Remarkably, Boniface continues to lead the scoring charts for his team, despite missing over two months of action. As Bayer Leverkusen maintains its position at the summit of the Bundesliga table with 58 points from 22 matches, Boniface’s influence remains pivotal to their aspirations.

As Osimhen and Boniface continue to dazzle on the global stage, their inclusion among the world’s elite strikers is a testament to their talent, dedication, and potential to scale even greater heights in the world of football.
