You might want to think about the next Mario Balotelli when you watch him play.
Opoku, 15, is the most feared goal poacher in Italy at his age.
Last season, he beat Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to highest number of goals scored in a single season by bagging 73 goals.
His astonishing scoring form was highlighted when he won the golden shoe award in the Mediterranean Cup by scoring 11 goals in five games.
Last year, reports emerged about AC Milan trying to smuggle the Nkawkaw-born from the Istituto Milano to the San Siro.
He spoke of his huge admiration for Mario Balotelli and how he is dying to emulate him.
Italy must be harbouring plans of catching him young.
