Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has been attracting interest from several top clubs across Europe after impressing with his performances this season. Despite Napoli’s recent elimination from the UEFA Champions League, the Nigerian forward has proven to be a bright spot for the Italian club, scoring 26 goals in all competitions.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Napoli values Osimhen at around €70 million, but several clubs are reportedly willing to pay more than that to secure his services. Premier League clubs Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked with the striker, while Spanish giants Real Madrid are also said to be interested in signing him.
Osimhen joined Napoli from Lille in the summer of 2020 for a reported fee of €70 million and has since established himself as one of the most promising young forwards in Europe. He has been a consistent performer for the Naples outfit, and has shown great potential for the future.
Napoli are said to be keen on keeping hold of Osimhen for the long term, but the interest from other clubs may prove to be too much to resist. The Nigerian international has reportedly not expressed any desire to leave the club, but with the level of interest in him, a move could still be on the cards.
It remains to be seen whether Napoli will consider selling Osimhen in the upcoming summer transfer window, but his performances this season have certainly caught the attention of top clubs across Europe. With his age and potential, Osimhen could be a valuable asset for Manchester United with Erik ten Hag looking to bolster their attack.
The Manchester side currently have Wout Weghorst and Anthony Martial as their striker options and with the pair only netting nine goals between them this season, it is evident that the Red Devils are in desperate need of a prolific striker.
