According to Il Corriere dello Sport newspaper, Victor Osimhen’s agent met Aurelio De Laurentiis and Cristiano Giuntoli earlier this week to discuss the striker’s possible move to Manchester United or Arsenal.
Osimhen may leave the Stadio Maradona in the summer with Napoli looking for an offer above €100m. That’s as much as Newcastle United offered in January, but the Partenopei decided against selling the Nigeria international in the middle of the season.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport newspaper, Osimhen dreams of moving to the Premier League, where Arsenal and Manchester United are his favourite destinations. His agent Roberto Calenda is in talks with both clubs and has informed De Laurentiis and Giuntoli about the Gunners’ and the Red Devils’ interests.
Il Corriere reports that Manchester United are leading the race to sign Osimhen, but La Gazzetta dello Sport reported last week that the 23-year-old wants to play Champions League football next season.
Napoli have already identified several possible replacements for Osimhen: Gianluca Scamacca and Giacomo Raspadori(Sassuolo), Luis Sinisterra, a versatile winger under contract with Feyenoord who can also play as a centre forward, and Giovanni Simeone (Verona).
