Italian agent Andrea D’Amico believes Victor Osimhen is ‘better’ than Erling Haaland and predicts the Napoli centre forward could join PSG if Leo Messi leaves.
D’Amico is not Osimhen’s agent but is a well-known figure in the world of football, representing several current and former Serie A players, including Juventus‘ Sebastian Giovinco and Nicolò Fagioli.
Speaking about Osimhen during an interview with the radio program Tutti Convocati, D’Amico said: “Right now, he is the best striker in the world, even better than Haaland. But assessments regarding the market will be made in the summer.”
So, which could be the possible destination for the Nigeria international?
“I think he won’t lack options, especially in England even if PSG can’t be underestimated, because they could lose an important player in attack. I think Messi will go to Miami, but this is only my feeling.”
Osimhen is the current Serie A leading scorer with 21 goals in 23 appearances. Overall, he has netted 25 goals in 29 games across all competitions this term.
The 24-year-old sustained a muscle injury while on international duty with Nigeria last week, missing Sunday’s home game against Milan, lost 4-0 by the Partenopei.
The Serie A leaders hope Osimhen will be available when they visit the Rossoneri in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals next week, but Sky Sport Italia said on Tuesday that they’d need ‘a miracle’ to see him in action at San Siro on April 12.
