The race for Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen’s signature continues to heat up, with Bayern Munich now emerging as a strong contender, according to Soccernet.ng. The highly sought-after player has attracted the attention of several top European clubs, including English powerhouses Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United.
Recent reports indicate that representatives from these Premier League clubs are scheduled to meet with Osimhen’s camp in the coming week to discuss a potential transfer. However, it was Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) who made the initial move in the race by submitting a €100 million bid to Napoli for Osimhen’s services.
Unfortunately for PSG, their offer was swiftly rejected by Napoli, who expressed their desire to retain the talented striker unless their financial expectations were met. While Bayern Munich had been eyeing Tottenham’s Harry Kane, they have now shifted their focus to securing Osimhen.
German media reports, as featured in Corriere del Mezzogiorno, reveal that Bayern Munich has made a verbal offer to Napoli for the Nigerian striker. The Bundesliga champions are aiming for a marquee signing but currently seem unable to meet Napoli President De Laurentiis’s valuation of €150 million.
Napoli, fresh off their first league title in 33 years, are determined to retain Osimhen for at least another season as they aim to defend their Scudetto crown. The Italian champions are working on building a formidable squad capable of repeating their success in the upcoming campaign.
The transfer saga surrounding Victor Osimhen is far from over, with Bayern Munich now firmly in the mix. As the negotiations unfold, football fans eagerly await the outcome, which could have significant implications for the future of the highly talented Nigerian striker.
