Bayern Munich ready to table €120M bid to sign top Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen could be on the verge of joining Bayern Munich this summer as the Bundesliga champions are weighing up an astronomical bid for the Nigerian.

Osimhen has been hugely impressive for the Serie A giants since joining the club in 2020 from Lille and emerged as the team’s top scorer in the 2021/22 campaign with 18 goals in all competitions.

The 23-year-old’s performances have now attracted the interest of Bayern Munich who are now willing to table €120m to sign the Nigerian forward from Napoli.

With Robert Lewandowski ready to dump the Bundesliga champions for a move to Barcelona, the Bavarians believe Osimhen will be an ideal replacement for the Polish striker.
