Osimhen has already scored 14 goals and made four assists across 19 appearances this season.

Italian journalist, Ciro Vanerato said:

“If Osimhen’s representatives or the footballer show the desire to have new experiences elsewhere, Napoli could sell him for very high figures of €120m or €140m."

Vaneratio also noted the many top clubs keen on Osimhen's signature:

“First and foremost Real Madrid, because Carlo Ancelotti dotes on him, then Manchester United, Tottenham (if Harry Kane leaves), and Chelsea.”

Man United are reportedly looking to improve their attacking department with the signing of the Nigerian striker.

Meanwhile, there are strong indications that Napoli may increase the net pay of the Nigerian, in order to ward off teams from snapping Osimhen up.

Osimhen sends message amid rumours

Sports Brief earlier reported that English Premier League club, Man United continue the chase for Nigerian international, Osimhen ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old has been in blistering form for Napoli this season, scoring 12 goals and making three assists in the Serie A so far.

It is believed the former Lille of France striker has told his agents to postpone further talks about his future until the end of the season.
