Manchester United are ‘lining up’ a summer 2023 transfer bid for Napoli star and Nigeria international Victor Osimhen, according to Il Mattino (h/t Manchester Evening News).

The Red Devils are amongst several clubs monitoring the 24-year-old ahead of the upcoming transfer window. Erik ten hag is already working on a deal to bring the striker to Old Trafford.

Osimhen’s agents are looking to bring their client to the Premier League. However, the Nigerian has asked his agents to stop discussions on possible moves, considering the Italian giants’ position in the Serie A table.

The Partenopei are leading the league at the moment and have a nine-point gap at the top. As a result, the Naples-based club now have the chance to lift their first Scudetto since 1990.

In the current campaign, the 24-year-old has been a pivotal player for Napoli. He has made 17 appearances in all competitions for the Italian outfit, scoring 13 goals and providing four assists.

The Serie A giants were also impressive in this season’s Champions League group stages, finishing top of their group. They will now face Eintracht Frankfurt in the round of 16.

Apart from Man United, Newcastle United and Arsenal are also eyeing the striker’s signature. While the Gunners are leading the Premier League, the Magpies have also surprised many and are currently in third place.

The Red Devils lost Cristiano Ronaldo in November and have replaced him with Wout Weghorst. However, the 30-year-old has joined on loan as an apparent short-term solution until the end of the campaign.
