Serie A

Opinion: Why Victor Osimhen will thrive at Manchester United and in Premier League

Victor Osimhen led Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years. The Nigerian forward was amazing, to say the least, with 23 goals, the highest in Seria A 2022–23. He was as enticing in the Champions League, when he scored five spectacular goals before his club was eliminated in the quarterfinals by AC Milan.

The 24-year-old joined Napoli for €81 million in July 2020 and is expected to generate more than £100 million in the forthcoming transfer market. Manchester United are interested in signing Victor Osimhen, who is a fearsome striker. This season, the Red Devils have been heavily reliant on Marcus Rashford, who has only found the back of the net a handful of times. Apart from Marcus, no other player has scored seven goals in the Premier League this season, highlighting the team's lack of finishers in the final third.

Victor Osimhein might fit into Erik Ten Hag's style of play, as well as Premier League football. He possesses speed and the ability to make counter-attacks, which is frequently seen in English football. The Nigerian's fiery nature and skill set are a match made in heaven, and can be compared to Manchester City forward Erling Haaland.

Osimhen made waves in the Neopolitan after being compared to Argentina superstar Diego Maradona. Osimhen has drawn similarities to Didier Drogba because of his deadly precision.

Victor Osimhen's consistency has been incredible this season, and his goal-scoring total has enabled him to achieve 100 goals ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Victor caught the attention of media outlets after scoring ten goals in the Under-17 World Cup in 2015. After helping the Eagles win the title for the sixth time, the striker left the Ultimate Strikers Academy for Wolfsburg.

His time in Germany was not pleasant, as he had to go 16 games without scoring. The Nigerian's fortunes improved with a loan move to Belgian club Charleroi, where he was voted team player of the year after scoring 20 goals. Charleroi paid €3.5 million for the superstar, which was a steal.

Victor Osimhen has made no secret of his ambition to play in the Premier League, referring to it as his "dream." Manchester United are interested in the Nigerian forward and may be able to sign him this summer.

His style of play is effective for a team like Manchester City, but with Erling Haaland already on the team, it makes sense for Osimhen to be his rival and challenge him for the Golden Boot next season.

If Victor move to the Premier League, English fans will experience a surge of excitement as they watch Mo Salah, Harry Kane, Erling Haaland, and Osimhen compete for the Golden Boot. His presence will strengthen Manchester United and make the race for the top four more difficult, with every team becoming more capable of winning the title.
