Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Victor Osimhen

Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Victor Osimhen -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly now eyeing up a move for Victor Osimhen in the summer.

The Lowdown: Standout season

Osimhen has had a standout season at Napoli, firing them to UEFA Champions League qualification with a third-placed finish in the Serie A, above the likes of Juventus, Lazio and Roma.

The Nigeria international has 14 goals and five assists in the division with one game still left to play, and has managed no fewer than 24 goal contributions in total over all competitions this season (Transfermarkt), impressive numbers indeed.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

Speaking on TV program Senza Filtri (via Area Napoli), ‘transfer market expert’ Niccolo Ceccarini has revealed that the St. James’ Park faithful, as well as both Manchester United and Arsenal, are now eyeing up a move for Osimhen this summer.

Should Newcastle sign Osimhen?





However, it is not certain whether any of them will pay the €100m (£84.7m) required for his signature.

The Verdict: Statement signing

Claimed to be ‘the most terrifying striker in Europe‘ by journalist and African football expert Saddick Adams, Osimhen is a player who will surely have a lot more admirers come the summer.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

At just 23 years of age, he has the potential to become one of the best strikers in the world, if he is not already, and it’s not hard to see why Napoli are demanding such a huge sum.

The 6 foot 1 star has already proven he can dominate English opposition, scoring both goals in a 2-2 draw with Leicester City in this year’s Europa League.

While he would be an expensive outlay, the North East club should have the money to pay the fee required, and if they do, it would really send out a statement to the rest of the Premier League and Europe that they mean business.
