Sky Journalist – Manchester United to face competition from Arsenal for £133m star

Arsenal is expected to compete with Manchester United for the signing of Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen.

 

Over the previous few seasons, Osimhen has emerged as one of Europe’s most clinical strikers. A move to the Premier League is widely regarded as the peak for any player in Europe, therefore the Napoli forward could be on his way to England in the near future.

Arsenal and Newcastle are trying to match Manchester United in their pursuit of Osimhen, according to a report from the Italian publication Il Mattino, via Goal.

According to the source, Napoli will seek roughly £133 million to sell Osimhen, a potentially unreasonable sum for any club to spend for the Nigerian.

Manchester United, on the other hand, is desperate for a new center striker after losing Cristiano Ronaldo in late 2022, thus a cheaper alternative may be considered if Napoli refuses to lower their asking price.

With numerous teams interested in his talents, a bidding war could break out, with Napoli finally receiving an offer close to their asking price.
