Chelsea and Man Utd tussling for Nigerian star?

Victor Osimhen news

Osimhen to EPL?

Chelsea and Manchester United could go head-to-head to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen during the summer.

The Nigerian star has had a tremendous season for Napoli, scoring 21 goals and providing five assists from just 26 games.

He has already revealed his desire to play in the Premier League and Florian Plettenberg claims that Chelsea and United want him.

The Blues have lacked the presence of a genuine goalscorer in the squad and they are desperate for a marquee striker ahead of next season.

Meanwhile, United have had Marcus Rashford firing this term but they are still determined to bring in a specialist for the number nine role.

Osimhen has been identified as the perfect target for both teams, but they may need to break the bank to sign him from Napol this summer.

The Serie A outfit are expected to demand a premium fee in the region of €150m and owner Aurelio De Laurentiis won't offer any discounts.
