Serie A leaders Napoli have reportedly put a €150 Million price tag on their star forward Victor Osimhen.
The Nigerian striker is one of the hottest properties in the European market and is attracting interest from several Premier League clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea.
He is enjoying the most productive season in his career and sits top of the Serie A scoring charts with 21 goals. His goals has helped Napoli go 19 points clear at the top of Serie A, while his brace against Eintracht Frankfurt last week took his tally in all competitions to 25 goals in just 29 appearances.
His stellar performance has not gone unnoticed in Europe, and his club are prepared for the several offers that will follow when the season ends. According to FootMercato via GOAL, the Naples side have slapped a €150 million price tag on their priced asset and do not intend to go lower.
The Nigeria star is under contract with Napoli until 2025, but he could be out of Italy this summer if the right offer comes.
The report further adds that the 24-year-old fancies a move to Manchester United, who have prioritised signing a new striker this summer.
Chelsea are looking for a high-profile striker in the upcoming transfer window and are also interested in Osimhen. But unlike Manchester United, who are in a strong financial position, the Blues are not in a robust place financially following massive spending in the recent past.
French heavyweights PSG are also in the race for Osimhen, but the striker prefers a move to the Premier League.
Earlier this month, Osimhen confirmed he would sit down with his agents to discuss his future at the end of the season.
“I don’t know what the future holds. I think I’m on the right track,’ said Osimhen.
At the end of the season, I will sit down with my agents and discuss everything. I will also be in talks with the club.
“I am incredibly grateful to Naples. We will find a good solution together,” he added.
The striker also revealed earlier this month that he dreams of moving to the Premier League.
“A lot of people worldwide consider the Premier League as the best and the strongest league, but now I’m in one of the best leagues in the world, which is the Italian Serie A.
“I’m working so hard to make sure that I achieve my dream of playing in the Premier League someday, but like I said, it’s a process, and I just want to keep on this momentum and continue to do well.”
