Victor Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda, has called on referees in the Italian top flight to protect his client from dangerous opponents.
The 24-year-old has enjoyed rave reviews this season following his impressive displays for Serie A leaders Napoli.
Osimhen scored the goal of the-season in Napoli’s 2-1 victory against AS Roma at the weekend.
The Nigerian is currently the league's leading scorer with 14 goals in 16 league appearances.
Osimhen missed out on action for around a month this season as a result of an injury.
The Wolfsburg player was ruled out for around three months last season and missed the Africa Cup of Nations due to injury.
Having watched the striker come under some dangerous fouls from opponents again this season, Calenda wants more protection for his man.
“Other game, other rocket in the universe from Victor,” the Italian agent wrote in his Twitter handle.
“Message for the referees: Too many dangerous fouls against Osimhen." It is not possible to play like this!!! “
