Manchester United have reportedly initiated contact with Napoli over a summer swoop for Victor Osimhen.
The Lowdown: United ‘on pole’ for Osimhen
It looks set to be a busy summer at Old Trafford ahead of Erik ten Hag’s first season as Red Devils manager. A number of outgoings are expected, one of which is Edinson Cavani, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
The Nigeria international has contributed to 23 goals in 30 games for Napoli this season, and a further update has now emerged ahead of a possible move to Manchester.
The Latest: Contact made
The Serie A club have told United that they want €110m (£94.3m) for the 23-year-old, although that figure appears to be negotiable.
How many signings do Man Utd need to make this summer?
The Verdict: Big money…
Osimhen has scored goals in Belgium, France and Italy and is seemingly getting better each season, but it looks as if United may need to pay a huge fee for his services.
Therefore, the Red Devils should be in close discussion with Ten Hag, ensuring that he definitely sees the 23-year-old in his plans before attempting to push through a move.
It looks as if they are already putting plans in place over a mega-money transfer for the centre-forward, who can also play out wide, making this a prospective deal to keep a close eye on over the coming weeks.
