Alan Hutton has tipped Man Utd to agree the signing of the £70million-rated center forward. The 38-year-old told Football Insider:

“First and foremost I think Napoli paid about £62m for him, so that has gone up,”

“Man United need a number nine, will Man United go and break the bank for somebody like him who is an outstanding footballer?“

Osimhen suffered a muscle injury back in September last year and since recovering, he has been in unstoppable form for Napoli.

The Nigerian finisher has scored 17 goals in the last 17 Serie A games under Luciano Spalletti and has only failed to find the net in three fixtures.

He won the U-17 World Cup for his country and also won the U-23 African Cup. For the senior national side, so far, the 24-year-old striker has scored 15 goals and provided 8 assists in just 18 starts.

Victor Osimhen has a proven track record of scoring and Man Utd desperately need someone like him to lead the frontline at Old Trafford.

Have your say – Who should Erik ten Hag lure to improve the strike-force?
