Top European clubs fighting over Nigerian striker Osimhen

Nigeria Super Eagle forward Victor Osimhen is the number one target for many leading European clubs after his excellent season at Napoli.

Chelsea, PSG and Manchester United are among the clubs linked with signing Napoli star.

Osimhen is a European star

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has handed Chelsea a boost in their pursuit of the striker. According to reports from Italy, the Nigerian is refusing to sign a new deal with the Serie A champions after receiving offers from PSG and the Blues.

The report from Il Matino states that Roberto Calenda, his agent, recently held a meeting with the club’s owner over his future.

Osimhen featured 32 times for the Italian giants in Serie A this season, scoring 26 goals.

While Napoli are, understandably, desperate to hold onto the Nigeria international, understands that the Blues are considering a bid which could demand a record-breaking fee.

With Osimhen’s contract at Napoli set to expire in 18-months, he naturally becomes an attractive option – whether he becomes available for a discounted fee next year or simply a free agent in 2025.

“Osimhen is good in open spaces, in the air, with the ball passed to his feet. He will have an important future, no matter what team he plays in, and is above all a good lad too.

“His teammates love him, he helps them out and resolves situations rather than complains. He will become even more of a top player in future.”
