Manchester United News: Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has been impressive with his performances in the Serie A. Owing to this, Manchester United, Arsenal, and Newcastle United are interested in signing the striker.
Manchester United are looking to rebuild themselves under incoming manager Erik Ten Hag. Owing to this, The Red Devils will reportedly go all-out in the summer to sign multiple players.
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal on the other hand have improved significantly since the last season. The Gunners look like a well-gelled unit but are only missing out on a lethal striker in the summer.
Unlike the two already established Premier League giants, Newcastle United are looking to level up in the summer. With new Saudi Arabian owners at the helm, the Magpies are hoping to play in Europe at the end of next season.
Manchester United News: Can the Red Devils sign Victor Osimhen?
Manchester United News: As per reports, Manchester United are the favourites to sign Victor Osimhen at the moment. But Arsenal and Newcastle United also want to sign the Napoli striker in the summer.
Manchester United have reportedly taken the first step before their Premier League rivals to sign the Napoli star. The Red Devils have established a contract with Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda.
Victor Osimhen joined Napoli in 2020. Since then, the striker has scored 26 goals in 58 appearances for the Serie A giants. The Nigerian used to play for French club Lille before joining the Naples-based club.
The 23-year-old has scored 12 goals in 23 Serie A appearances in the 2021/22 season. Owing to this, Napoli were in the race for the Serie A title along with AC Milan and Inter Milan.
But Victor Osimhen’s two goalless games against Roma and Empoli were very costly as his team dropped a total of 4 points. Owing to this, Napoli are now 7-points behind league leaders AC Milan with just four games to go.
Can Arsenal and Newcastle United challenge the Red Devils for the striker?
Manchester United News: As per the report, Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda is working behind the scenes in order to move his client from Napoli. The striker reportedly wants to take the next step in his career but the Serie A giants are not willing to let him go!
Newcastle United had reportedly made a £84m bid for Victor Osimhen in January. But Napoli turned down the bid without even considering it. The Magpies are capable of making an even larger bid hence it has to be seen if they can land the striker.
Arsenal on the other hand could offer Champions League football to the Nigerian striker. Hence both Newcastle United and Arsenal could provide a realistic challenge to Manchester United as they attempt to bring Osimhen to Old Trafford in the summer.
