Nigeria’s in-form striker, Victor Osimhen appears to be the most sort for commodity in football transfer market this coming summer window.
Bundesliga side, Bayern Munich has joined the race for the red-hot striker as the club hopes to upstage early contenders, Manchester United and Chelsea.
If that comes to fruition, the current African Footballer of the Year, Sadio Mane may play side-by-side with his projected successor, Victor Osimhen.
Sky Sports has reported that the German side is determined to fortify its attacking option with Osimhen as the main target and information also emerged that the Napoli FC cult hero is said to have given the offer a thought in a bid to avoid the pressure that is associated with glamorous English Premiership League.
After a below par outing on Tuesday night at Manchester City Etihad stadium in 3-0 thumping, Bayern are looking for a new top striker for the coming season. According to Sky Information, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is the main target.
If the transfer is effected, Osimhen may pair with African Footballer of the Year, Senegal’s Sadio Mane at Bayern Munich.
Transfer expert and Sky reporter, Florian Plettenberg, clearly: “Osimhen wants and would switch to Bayern immediately. He’s in the mood for Munich. He was already in the Bundesliga and didn’t ignite at Wolfsburg, but the signs have changed.”
The Napoli striker announced in March that it was his dream to play in England. But according to Sky information, the Nigerian can definitely imagine a move to Bayern:
However, the Premiership giants like Manchester United and Chelsea have enough fund at disposal to lure the striker away from Napoli while Bayern Munich will have to bed its $100m transfer policy to archive its pursuit.
According to Sky information, the FCB bosses are preparing for a difficult search, which should also be very expensive. The previous record fee of 80 million for Lucas Hernandez should be surpassed. Sky Sport knows that the German record champions are definitely able to handle a 100million euro transfer.
Aside Osimhen, the club is also looking in the direction of Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani in a price range that Bayern could afford. According to Sky information, there has been a rethinking of the Frenchman on Säbener Straße. Actually, the Bundesliga top scorer wasn’t an issue because he didn’t really fit into the system.
But way back last month, Sky reported that there was an exchange between FCB and the Osimhen’s management, in which those responsible at Munich made it clear that they had a very high opinion of the attacker.
The bosses are not alone in this: Sky expert Didi Hamann also raves about the “mad player” and advises his ex-club to take the clipper to Munich.
