According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Newcastle United will make a new bid to sign Victor Osimhen in the summer, but Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are also interested.
The Nigeria international has scored 15 goals in 25 appearances this season, 11 in 20 Serie A games. He remained out of action for nearly two months following a cheekbone injury at the end of November, continuing to score consistently after his return to action in mid-January.
His performances have attracted interest from many clubs around Europe, especially from the Premier League.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Newcastle United made an official bid in the January transfer window and will make a new attempt at the end of the season. Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the 23-year-old after failing to secure the services of Dusan Vlahovic in January.
Tottenham and Manchester United are also monitoring the former Lille star who joined Napoli in 2020. Spurs could see Harry Kane leave in the summer, while Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani’s future at Old Trafford is uncertain.
Napoli are in no rush to sell their star, given that his €4m-a-year deal at the Stadio Maradona runs out in 2025. Nevertheless, President Aurelio De Laurentiis would consider offers in the region of €100m.
In Premier tutti pazzi per Osimhen. Ma servono 100 milioni di euro https://t.co/EEPEOUHqEK
