Victor Osimhen, a forward from Napoli, is reportedly a transfer target for Newcastle United this summer.
It appears that the Nigerian international could be on the move once more, following some impressive performances with his former club Lille as a youngster.
Newcastle are reportedly ready to make a big push to sign Osimhen this summer, according to “a mix of claims from Il Mattino and CalcioNapoli,” as summarized and translated by Sport Witness.
After being linked with Manchester United by the Daily Star, Osimhen has now been linked with the Premier League side. However, that report claimed that the Red Devils had made it clear that they would not be meeting Napoli’s demands of £100million for the 23-year-old midfielder.
However, if Manchester United are to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani up front this summer, they will need to spend a lot of money on new attacking players.
Osimhen appears to be the perfect fit for this position, despite the fact that bringing him to England will undoubtedly be an expensive endeavor.
In order to help Eddie Howe’s team reach the next level and possibly even compete for the top four next season, Newcastle United fans will be hoping that their new wealthy owners splash the cash on this exciting talent to help them.
