The 24-year-old Napoli striker scored his 24th and 25th goals of the season on Sunday, helping the Italian heavyweights extend their lead at the top of Serie A with a 4-0 win against Torino. Napoli is now 19 points clear at the top of the standings with only 11 games remaining, putting them on course to win their first league title since 1990.

Osimhen’s double against Torino was his second brace in two games and his 12th goal in 11 appearances in all competitions, indicating that he is continuing to make huge improvements under manager Luciano Spalletti. The Nigerian is quickly establishing himself as one of Europe’s most promising and sought-after strikers.

He has been connected with a number of teams ahead of the summer transfer season, and it is no surprise that Manchester United has identified him as a possible candidate to become the new face of their attacking line. United have identified Osimhen as a target and are interested in bringing him to Old Trafford, according to the Manchester Evening News, despite the fact that Harry Kane is presently Erik ten Hag’s primary target.

United, who advanced to the FA Cup semi-finals with a 3-1 win over Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday, is likely to prioritize the signing of a new striker ahead of next season and intend to spend a significant amount of money to do so. Osimhen, who joined Napoli from Lille in July 2020, is one of Europe’s most promising strikers, sparking a surge of interest with his eye-catching displays and exploits in front of goal.

Because Napoli is top of the Serie A league and still has a possibility to reach the Champions League final this season, the Italian club is unlikely to be under as much pressure to move their star player this summer. They have previously warned that releasing the Nigeria international will need an exorbitant ransom.

But, given that Spurs are likely to be even more reluctant to let Kane go, despite the fact that he is out of contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in June 2024, Osimhen could be a less expensive option for United. Many supporters believe the athletic center-forward would be better suited to the manner Ten Hag likes to play, given that he has frequently remarked that United is better when Anthony Martial, who is not short of speed, is at the top of the pitch.

Although Osimhen has repeatedly stated that he is content in Naples, he recently admitted that playing in the Premier League is a “dream” of his. Even while United will have to deal with Napoli and their demands first, this should make any dreams of signing him this summer that much more realistic.

“I think playing in one of the top five leagues in the world (Serie A) is a wonderful feeling for me,” Osimhen remarked earlier this month. Many people throughout the world regard the Premier League as the best and strongest league, yet I’m now playing in one of the best leagues in the world, the Italian Serie A.

“I’m working extremely hard to ensure that I realize my dream of playing in the Premier League someday, but, as I said, it’s a process, and all I want to do is maintain this momentum and continue to do well.”

Based on how much Ten Hag considers character and attitude when assessing transfer targets, Osimhen’s desire to play in England could be a major plus for the Dutchman. Given that he will not turn 25 until December, the attacker definitely has huge potential and might serve United for up to a decade.

He is a speedy, agile, modern-day striker who would fit in well at United. He is scoring goals at a rapid pace and has more direct goal contributions (30) than appearances this season (29).

He is an exceptional talent who has made it known that he wishes to test himself in England. The more goals he scores, the greater United’s desire for him.
