Ex-Nigeria U20 Star Orji Okonkwo Is Second Most Efficient Striker In ItalyFormer Nigeria U20 international Orji Okonkwo is the second most efficient striker in the Italian Serie A.

Only Sampdoria's Poland U21 international Dawid Kownacki, a goal every 48 minutes, is more efficient than the Nigerian in front of a goal, with the best minutes per goal record this season.

With 10 appearances to his name and three goals in 202 minutes, Okonkwo has scored on average a goal every 67 minutes.

The Bologna frontman scored in matches against Sassuolo, Hellas Verona and Sampdoria, and is ahead of top scorer in the Italian top division Ciro Immobile who has netted 20 goals in 1,561 minutes, a goal every 78 minutes.

Okonkwo has proved that no matter the level he can score goals as he has notched 5 goals in 5 appearances for Bologna's youth team in the Primavera 1.

He became the sixth youngest Nigerian to score in the Serie A when he found the net against Sassuolo on September 24, 2017 aged 19 years, 8 months and 5 days.
