Man Utd target Victor Osimhen shines for Napoli in stunning win vs Juventus

Manchester United target Victor Osimhen produced a tremendous performance last night as Napoli beat Juventus by a comfortable 5-1 scoreline in Serie A.

The Naples outfit are aiming to win their first league title in more than 30 years. They strengthened their position yesterday by going 10 points clear at the top of the table.

Osimhen was undoubtedly one of the best performers on the night. He scored with headers in either half against the Bianconeri and also chipped in with an assist.

The Nigerian star has now bagged 12 goals and four assists from 14 league games this term. His performance yesterday will have impressed United, who are keeping tabs on him.

Man Utd should swoop for Osimhen’s services this summer

United recently confirmed the signing of Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley. The Dutchman is a stop-gap solution until the summer before a marquee striker will be signed.

Osimhen is part of United’s three-man wishlist for the summer transfer window. In our opinion, the hierarchy should prioritise his signature over Benjamin Sesko or Harry Kane.

The Nigerian has all the traits to succeed in the Premier League. He has good pace, can link-up play and is gifted with superb finishing skills. He has also improved his aerial ability this term.

The former Lille man has a potential weakness when it comes to winning ground duels, but it does not matter much in the end, provided he can keep scoring goals for his club regularly.

He is currently valued at €70 million by Transfermarkt, but knowing the tough negotiation skills of Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, United should expect to pay €100-120m for the striker.
