One of the major topics of discussion during the upcoming summer transfer window is expected to be the future of Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian striker has reportedly caught the attention of some of the top clubs in the world, who are interested in signing him.
Having a remarkable season at Napoli, Victor Osimhen has helped his team to establish a 15-point lead at the top of Serie A. He has been in excellent form and has broken records to lead the scoring charts.
As a result, there will likely be a lot of lucrative offers for him during the upcoming transfer window. However, it remains to be seen which clubs are the frontrunners to secure his future.
Tottenham Hotspur, who are not considered the top contenders for Victor Osimhen's signature, has been rumored as a possible destination for the in-form striker. However, it seems that the speculations regarding his move to Spurs have decreased in recent months.
FC Bayern Munich
FC Bayern Munich is on the lookout for a new star striker to lead their frontline, and Victor Osimhen, who stands at 6'1", could be the ideal candidate for the role. Osimhen has previous experience playing in Germany, having previously played for Wolfsburg, and he could be the next big attraction at the Bavarian club.
Similar to Osimhen, Erling Haaland is having a phenomenal season, leading the Premier League's Golden Boot race with an impressive 27 goals. It seems unnecessary for Manchester City to pair both players together, given Haaland's exceptional form.
Nevertheless, the prospect of a front two comprising Osimhen and Haaland would be incredibly explosive and lethal for any opposition team to handle.
The potential partnership between Victor Osimhen and Arsenal could be quite captivating, especially since the Gunners have a significant following in Nigeria. Furthermore, the idea of Osimhen playing alongside players such as Gabriel Jesus, Bukayo Saka, and Martin Odegaard could prove to be frightening for their opponents.
Chelsea, like several other top clubs, needs a dominant center-forward. The club's attempt to revive Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's form has not been successful, and they have been using Kai Havertz as a temporary replacement for the striker position. However, this is not a viable long-term solution, and Victor Osimhen could be an excellent addition to the squad.
However, there is a lingering question of whether Osimhen would be willing to take the risk of joining Chelsea, who have a notorious "striker's curse," causing several high-profile strikers to struggle at the club in recent years.
Manchester United remains the top contender to secure Victor Osimhen's signature.
It is highly likely that Erik ten Hag, the current United manager, is ecstatic at the possibility of adding Osimhen to the project he is currently building at Old Trafford.
