Manchester United will reportedly have to pay €160 million (£140m) if they wish to sign Napoli centre-forward Victor Osimhen during this summer’s transfer window.

The 24-year-old Nigerian international forward has been in excellent form for the Blues during the 2022-23 campaign.

He has scored 28 goals and registered five assists in 37 appearances in all competitions.

Osimhen netted five goals in six Champions League appearances this term, while he has managed 23 goals and five assists in 30 Serie A appearances, with Napoli winning the title.

The Nigeria international made the move to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona from Lille in 2020, and he has represented Gli Azzurri on 99 occasions, scoring 56 goals and registering 14 assists.

Osimhen only has another two years left to run on his contract with Napoli, and there is currently a host of speculation surrounding his future, with a number of clubs said to be interested in his services.

Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain have all been heavily linked with Osimhen, while Man United have also allegedly identified him as a leading target.

The Red Devils continue to be linked with Harry Kane, but Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is likely to resist a sale to a Premier League rival.

As a result, Osimhen could emerge as Man United’s preferred option through the middle, and according to Il Mattino, Napoli are not against selling the Nigerian this summer.

However, the report claimed that the 20-time English champions would have to offer €160 million (£140m) to stand a chance of bringing the attacker to Old Trafford in the upcoming market.
