  • Victor Osimhen has been tipped to join the English Premier League in the summer
  • The Napoli forward's future is still in doubt despite signing a new contract recently
  • The Nigerian striker is linked with a move to Arsenal, Chelsea, or Manchester United

Italian transfer guru, Gaetano Fedele, believes he knows Victor Osimhen's future destination amid links with Premier League giants, Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Nigerian striker has been in the Italian Serie A since 2020 after joining Napoli from French Ligue 1 side, Lille OSC.

The Super Eagles star's impressive performance last season in Italy's top flight helped his club win the Scudetto after over three decades.

In an interview with Tele A via Area Napoli, as per All Nigeria Soccer, Fedele believes the Nigerian international has already decided where he would play next season despite renewing his contract with Napoli recently.

"There is a clause in the renewal contract signed by Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian has already agreed with another club and will leave in the summer," he said.

The transfer expert also said he was confident the Super Eagles striker would switch to the Premier League in the summer.

"I am convinced that the Nigerian goes to England. Trust me, he knows where to go," Fedele added.

Aside from Arsenal and Chelsea, Osimhen has also reportedly drawn interest from Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG reportedly are in a better position financially to sign the 25-year-old, but he is said to be keen on playing in the Premier League.

Osimhen could still renew his contract with Napoli if he decides to stay, but the Italian giants are said to be already scouting for a replacement.

Osimhen’s struggles frustrate Napoli fans

Sports Brief earlier reported that Osimhen struggled against Atalanta, failing to threaten the opposition's goal and also picking up a yellow card for his efforts.

While Napoli supporters booed their team’s performance, some fans on social media instead focused on the Nigerian and his lacklustre finishing in the match.

Some supporters complained that Osimhen was bringing Napoli down, while others said that his value was decreasing due to the club's dismal performances.
