An increasing number of Manchester United fans are urging the club to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.
Several Manchester United supporters have reaffirmed their desire for the club to make a summer transfer deal for Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen.
United are anxious to add to their offensive options this month and is actively working on a deal to sign Burnley striker Wout Weghorst. United face Charlton Athletic in a crucial Carabao Cup quarter-final clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening. The Reds intend to sign the Dutchman on loan until the end of the season.
Their strategy is to bring in a short-term answer to their goal-scoring woes before investing in a big-name striker during the summer. As the Manchester Evening News reported exactly two months ago, Napoli ace Osimhen is on United’s shortlist of targets and is highly regarded.
The Nigerian international, who has a deal with the Italian giants until 2025, is the league’s leading scorer this season, with ten goals in 13 matches. He has 11 goals in 16 outings across all competitions.
He is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most talented strikers, equipped with quickness, trickery, and an eye for goal. He is a guy who a rising number of Manchester United fans have often mentioned as the player with whom they would like the club to boost their forward line this summer.
And calls for United to sign the 24-year-old grew louder on Sunday evening as he scored again to help Napoli beat Sampdoria 2-0 away. He scored the game’s first goal after a great run from deep and a terrific finish from close range.
Because of his goal-scoring record this season and his importance to Napoli’s quest to win Serie A this season, releasing him would require a substantial transfer fee. Nonetheless, United fans are eager to see him join Erik ten Hag’s side.
