Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, is reportedly attracting interest from Premier League rivals Manchester City and Manchester United.
The 22-year-old is currently thriving under Luciano Spalletti this season, scoring nine goals in 12 appearances across all competitions, including five league strikes which has helped Gli Azzurri maintain their position at the Serie A summit.
Pep Guardiola remains in the market for a new number nine following the departure of club legend Sergio Aguero, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also keen to bolster his attacking options.
Both head coaches are believed to be monitoring Osimhen – who is valued by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis at around €110m (£93m) – while the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, Osimhen began his youth career with the Ultimate Strikers Academy in his homeland and grew up with Didier Drogba as his footballing idol.
Several impressive performances at youth level earned him an international call up for Nigeria’s Under-17s side, before he made the move to Germany where he signed his first professional contract with Wolfsburg in January 2017.
Osimhen arrived at Die Wolfe with an injury which forced him to watch on from the sidelines for four months until the penultimate game of the 2016-17 campaign, when he came on as a substitute to make his Bundesliga debut against Borussia Monchengladbach.
The striker endured a frustrating spell as a peripheral figure in the first-team squad the following campaign, failing to score and featuring for just 278 minutes. Osimhen’s inability to cement his place in the starting lineup saw him loaned out to Belgian outfit RSC Charleroi, where he was able to showcase his talent, netting 20 goals in 36 games across all competitions.
This brilliant temporary spell away from Wolfsburg caught the eye of Ligue 1 side Lille, who spent around £20m to land the Nigerian on a five-year contract in the summer of 2019.
