Osimhen opened the scoring in the 14th minute and added a second after half-time to take his tally for the season to 13.

Wonderkid Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who has interested Manchester City, also got on the scoresheet along with Amir Rrahmani and Elif Elmas.

Osimhen struck twice using his head – with his first a display of brilliant poaching instinct as he put in the rebound after Kvaratskhelia’s bicycle kick was saved.

It is the first time Juventus have conceded five goals in a game in 30 years – dating back to their 5-1 defeat to Pescara in 1993.

Osimhen has been key for Napoli this season, scoring winning goals against Roma, Sassuolo and Bologna.

United and Chelsea have been linked with a move for the Nigerian over the last few weeks but on this basis it will take a lot for Napoli to sell.

The Red Devils could be plotting a summer move however, with the club said to be targeting a big-name striker following the loan arrival of Wout Weghorst this month.

Osimhen fits that mould, and it is rumoured Napoli could let him leave for £60million.

Real Madrid are also reportedly plotting a move for the goalscorer to complement Karim Benzema in attack.

Tottenham are also weighing up a move for Osimhen in case Harry Kane leaves the club.
