Victor Osimhen of Napoli wanted by everyone at the moment

Osimhen

Victor Osimhen of Napoli will be a wanted man this summer, and Arsenal and Manchester United have both been linked with a move to sign him. The Nigerian player had a great season at Napoli. He has 25 goals and five assists in all competitions so far. His partnership with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has put Partenopei on the brink of winning their first Serie A title in over 30 years.

Demand by Napoli for Victor Osimhen

The 24-year-old Nigerian has also attracted interest from teams such as Paris Saint-Germain. But it’s good news for Arsenal that he has publicly announced his dream of playing in the Premier League. Napoli will try and secure at least 150 million pounds for him. Described as a “frightening” striker by Nigerian legend Joseph Yobo, the 24-year-old has all the qualities a striker should have. With his back to the goal, he is strong, has good air control and can run behind the end line. Arsenal and Manchester united are well in line to battle it out for the striker.

The journalist told TeamTalk,

Manchester United are still very much looking for that traditional number nine and everybody is getting excited about whether it’s going to be Kane or Osimhen, but both are incredibly difficult to pull off.

“Napoli won’t want to sell Osimhen, but he’s been there long enough now that a deal could well be possible.

“Osimhen dreams of the Premier League. And I think Manchester United is more likely than Chelsea at this point because Osimhen’s always had one eye on Manchester United. He actually nearly joined them before moving to Napoli, but didn’t because he wasn’t convinced he’d get the game time.”

Victor Osimhen is a highly talented player who would easily flourish in the Premier League as he has all the qualities needed to adapt to the premier league.
