Manchester United: Victor Osimhen is a ‘priority’ signing
Manchester United see in-form Napoli striker Victor Osimhen as a ‘priority’ signing during the summer transfer window, according to a fresh update.
The Lowdown: Osimhen on fire for Napoli
The 24-year-old is having the season of his life currently, scoring 19 times in Serie A and helping Napoli sit 17 points clear at the top of the table.
There could be a huge battle for Osimhen’s signature come the end of the season and United have been linked with a move for him numerous times of late.
Now, a new rumour has emerged – one that suggests Old Trafford could be the Nigerian’s destination this summer.
The Latest: United still keen on signing
According to inews, United’s ‘priority’ signing in attack is Osimhen, with Erik ten Hag seeing him as the perfect man to come in and make his team even more formidable.
It is stated in the report that they have also been ‘monitoring’ Roma striker Tammy Abraham, but Osimhen is seen as the more important addition.
The Verdict: Could be a stunning addition
If United manage to snap up the 23-cap Nigeria international this summer, it could prove to be every bit as important as Casemiro, such is his quality.
Osimhen has run riot at times this season, using his pace and strength to devastating effect, with Walter Mazzarri also once describing him as ‘phenomenal’.
A centre forward is a missing piece of United’s jigsaw currently, with Wout Weghorst doing a job but not yet scoring in the Premier League, and the Napoli star could be a huge upgrade on him.
The thought of Osimhen dovetailing with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Antony is a mouth-watering one for United fans and he could turn the team into genuine Premier League and Champions League contenders.
