Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is open to any potential summer transfer amidst interest from both Chelsea and Manchester United.
The Nigerian international has been on great form this season, scoring 19 goals and providing 4 assists in 23 appearances (via TransferMarkt). Currently standing as the top goalscorer in Serie A, the 24-year-old has attracted many European giants with reports suggesting that the youngster will cost around £100 million ($120m), especially considering Napoli paid £61 million ($73m) for his signing in 2020.

The Serie A side are currently leading the Italian league, standing 15 points ahead of second-place Inter. The striker has been one of the key factors for the club’s recent success and while his focus is to attain Serie A title glory, he is open to considering a move away in the summer when the time comes.
"“When you are doing so well, top clubs around the world are watching, mostly in the top five leagues. And to be able to attract interest from these top clubs shows that I am doing great and it gives me the motivation to do even more for myself and my team. But I am focused on Napoli right now and they have the final say. I just want to help my team to win matches and win trophies. At the end of the season, we will see what is going to happen, but that is not up to me. It is for the club to decide.” Osimhen told ESPN"
United boss Erik ten Hag is keen on signing a new striker in the next transfer window and despite Marcus Rashford‘s recent success, the 25-year-old prefers playing as a winger. It remains to be seen whether Napoli decides to sell their superstar and at what price, while United will surely be exploring the market for all options.
