Unauthorised Osimhen doll; Napoli threatens legal action against toy store 



Serie A champion, Napoli, have declared that they will take legal action against an Italian toy store over the release of an unauthorized doll of Victor Osimhen.

The club made it known in a statement on Thursday evening  that neither them nor Osimhen authorized the doll. 

Napoli claimed the unlicensed doll bears a strange resemblance to Victor Osimhen which has made it viral on social media.

The club also stated that it is a breach of the player’s image rights and therefore will sue the company over the release.

A part of the official statement reads: “We’re denying any report on the Italian media about releasing kids’ toy

The doll’s resemblance with Osimhen made it go viral on social media.

The strange doll also features a protective mask with Osimhen’s jersey number ‘9’ on it, as well as a light blue jersey and a blond tuft of curly hair.
