A UK based tabloid, The Mirror, English Premier League side, Manchester United, have been told to pay £140m to sign Nigeria International Victor Osimhen this summer after agreeing on a deal to sign his Napoli teammate Kim Min-jae.
Osimhen has emerged as a prime target for United this summer following his impressive display for the Serie A champions this season and he heads the club’s striking shortlist.
The Mirror added that the Devils had their scouts in attendance for Napoli’s Champions League clash against Milan last month and have identified the Nigerian as the man to lead their attack next season.
Osimhen is enjoying one of the best moments of his career with Napoli this season as he currently tops the Italian Serie A scorers chart with 23 goals, three more than Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, who is in second position with 20 goals.
The Super Eagles forward has three years left in his contract at the Stadio Amando Maradona, but following a decent campaign so far, a number of European clubs have been linked with securing his services in the summer, with United one of the favorites to land the striker.
