According to an exclusive story covered by Football Insider, Man Utd are in pole position to hire the services of Osimhen from Napoli.

The news source have mentioned that after splashing a lot of cash in January, it could be financially impossible for Chelsea to sign the African striker.

It is reported that Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in luring the former Ligue 1 player, who has been sensational this season.

As per French source, Foot Mercato, the 24-year-old goal scorer prefers moving to the Premier League over returning to France by joining PSG.

Osimhen’s current deal with the Naples based side will expire in 2025 and he earns a salary of 5 million euros a season i.e. around £85,000 a week (La Gazzetta Dello Sport).

The 23-capped star is one of the most in-demand forwards in world football. He is currently leading the goalscoring charts in Italy with 21 goals.

In all competitions, the ex Bundesliga striker has found the net 26 times in 32 appearances for the Serie A side.

Under Ten Hag, Man Utd have ended their trophy drought and have a chance to win the FA Cup. Moreover, it is highly likely that they will finish in the top four and play CL football next season.

To take United to the next level, the Dutch manager must lure a world class finisher. In your opinion, should he sign Victor Osimhen?
