Manchester United are reportedly upping their pursuit of prolific Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.
According to Il Mattino, the club’s hierarchy is ‘already lining up’ a summer offer. The report also suggests that many intermediaries are keen on Osimhen making the switch from Serie A to the Premier League.
This is largely due to the recent transfer involving Mykhaylo Mudryk, as Shakhtar Donetsk received €70 million + €30 million in bonuses for the 22-year-old, who was unveiled as a new Chelsea player yesterday.
Napoli set asking price for star striker
Napoli have now valued their forward at around €150 million at least and believe the English sides will be more likely to pay it. Along with United, both Arsenal and Newcastle have joined the race for the Nigerian – all of which will appear as exciting prospects for the player.
A January deal is ruled out, as Osimhen is enjoying a fine season in Italy with the league leaders. He has 13 goals and four assists across all competitions so far.
