Chelsea and Manchester United in Battle for Serie A Superstar as Chelsea Offers Double Wages
Napoli’s prolific striker Victor Osimhen is reportedly attracting interest from top European clubs, with Chelsea and Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United leading the race for the Nigerian international’s signature.
According to a report from CalcioMercato, Todd Boehly is willing to double Osimhen’s current wages to lure him away from Italy, but the Blues will have to match Napoli’s transfer fee demands. The report suggests that a figure of around €120-130 million will be required to secure the services of the talented 24-year-old.
Osimhen has been in red-hot form this season, netting an impressive 21 goals and providing four assists across all competitions. His performances have caught the attention of several top clubs, including Manchester United, who are looking to bolster their attacking options.
However, it appears that Chelsea are leading the race for the Nigerian’s signature, with the London club desperate to find a reliable goal scorer to improve their fortunes in front of goal. Osimhen’s impressive form this season suggests that he could be the answer to their problems in the final third.
Despite Napoli’s reluctance to part ways with their star striker, Osimhen’s potential could be too tempting for top clubs to ignore.
The 24-year-old has shown that he has the ability to lead the line for any top team and his youth and potential for further improvement makes him an attractive proposition for any club looking to invest in a long-term solution upfront.
As the race for Osimhen’s signature heats up, it remains to be seen which club will emerge as the front-runner for his services.
However, one thing is for sure, the Nigerian’s impressive performances this season have put him firmly on the radar of Europe’s top clubs.
