Gundogan said Osimhen and Robert Lewandowski are great strikers who are good at their craft with fantastic finishing.
The former Manchester City midfielder stated Osimhen is strong and aggressive with different qualities to Polish forward, Lewandowski.
“Both are great strikers, they know where the goal is and how to score, they are good at finishing,” Osimhen was quoted by Tribal Football.
“I think Robert adapts well to our game, he knows how to control the ball in difficult conditions.
“Osimhen knows how to be aggressive when he has a player on him, but also if they have different qualities they are two world-class footballers.”
