Napoli have announced they will take legal action against a famous Italian toy store for an unlicensed doll about its striker, Victor Osimhen 

The doll bears an uncanny resemblance to their talismanic forward Osimhen.

It went viral on social media because it has several rather obvious elements that link it to the Nigerian international.

This includes a protective mask with the 9 on it, a light blue jersey and a blond tuft of curly hair.

“With reference to the news, which appeared on numerous online information sites, relating to the imminent marketing of a children’s game called “Cicciobello Bomber” – a doll that reproduces the features of the player Victor Osimhen, portrayed wearing a uniform clearly referable to the shirt from the Club’s first team – the SSCN specifies that this is an unofficial product, the creation of which has not been authorized in any way by the Club,” Napoli said in a statement.

“The Company has therefore taken steps to protect its interests in the appropriate places,” it added.

Recall that Osimhen was recently involved in a TikTok video row with Napoli.

The Nigerian international’s contract extension is currently in doubt and his relationship with the Serie A champions remains frosty.

Osimhen has scored five goals in nine appearances across all competitions for Napoli this season.
