Man United are keen to understand what it will take to bring Victor Osimhen to the Theatre of Dreams this summer. The Red Devils have asked Napoli for the centre-forward’s price tag, which has hinted toward a potential approach from the club after the campaign ends.
Nigeria international could be set for a move away from the Italian club in the summer if interested teams can cough up Napoli’s asking price. Napoli could demand nearly €110m, as they have benchmarked Lukaku’s move to Chelsea last summer.
Osimhen has been in fine goalscoring form for Napoli over the last two years. Club president Aurelio De Laurentiis decided to invest a significant sum of money when purchasing Victor from Lille and is hence asking for a fee that would see Napoli make a sizeable profit from his sale.
Serie A giants stay open to letting the 23-year-old striker leave amid heavy interest from the PL. At first, Arsenal were briefly the front-runners for his signature, with the Spanish manager earmarking him as a summer target. Paying €110m may be beyond Arsenal’s financial range, and hence, they might have ceased the pursuit altogether.
Man United find themselves in a convenient position to make a move for the Nigerian striker. Man United are reportedly leading the chase and may look to accelerate proceedings to secure the services of the African centre-forward as quickly as possible.
