Manchester United badly need a world class goal scorer and once again, the name of Victor Osimhen is in the lime light.
According to a story covered by La Gazzetta Dello Sport today (press image provided below), PL clubs like Man Utd, Liverpool and Newcastle are preparing offers to sign the Nigerian international this summer.
The famous Italian media outlet claim that in the coming days, important proposals could arrive from the English sides, who have ‘no rivals in Europe’.
Last summer, Jorge Mendes tried to execute a deal to bring Osimhen to Old Trafford but the move did not happen.
Now, United, the Reds and the Magpies are ‘preparing raises’ to lure the African superstar, who won the Paolo Rossi award in the Scudetto winning last campaign.
French champions, PSG, made a bid worth 100 million euros for the former Lille center forward but it was turned down by the Serie A giants.
It is reported that Napoli president, Aurelio de Laurentiis, will only sell his prized asset if the minimum asking price of £154million (180 million euros) is met.
GdS claim among PL sides, Liverpool are favorites with the highest possibility of signing Osimhen in the summer transfer window.
Napoli will be playing Champions League football next season and the Merseysiders can only offer Europa League to the player. So, I’m not sure how the Reds are in the lead.
As per today’s version of Corriere dello Sport, above all, United, Real Madrid and PSG are after the 31-goal striker. Liverpool are also trying but will not take part in the continent’s premier competition.
In your view, should Man Utd offer £154million to sign Victor Osimhen?
