The race for the Golden Boot in the Italian Serie A is still very much on but Victor Osimhen seems to be running away with it for now.

The Nigerian striker has continued to find the back of the net consistently and after his goal against Salernitana last weekend, he has now scored 13 goals in the Serie A this season.

Another Nigerian star is in second place after overtaking Arnautovic in the race. Ademola Lookman has revived his career in the Italian Serie A this season.

He is currently one of the main men for Atalanta having scored 11 goals in the league. The Nigerian international scored two goals and provided an assist in the 3-3 draw against Juventus last weekend.

It is now a two-horse race and history is on the verge of being made. If any of the Nigerian stars finishes the season as the highest goalscorer in the league, he would become the first African player to win the award.

So far, both players are capable of achieving the feat and would most likely do so if they can stir clear of injuries and continue in their current form.
