Man Utd lead Chelsea in the race for Victor Osimhen as PSG plan talks with his agentRex
Osimhen, 24, is enjoying a sublime season with runaway Serie A leaders Napoli.
The Nigeria international has scored 25 goals in all competitions.
And it’s reckoned Osimhen will make the next step in his career once Napoli have wrapped up the Italian title.
There are plenty of teams interested in signing the striker this summer.
Osimhen says he dreams of playing in the Premier League at some stage.
And Foot Mercato claims it’s Man United who are leading the charge in England.
Erik ten Hag is desperate for a new hitman to lead his line next term.
And Osimhen ticks all the boxes, despite Napoli reportedly valuing him at a whopping £130million.

Chelsea are also interested in a deal as they too seek a No9.
But the report claims they are “not in a strong position”, with the Blues highly unlikely to reach next season’s Champions League unless they win it this year.
However, it appears PSG could be set to leapfrog the competition during the international break.
It’s believed transfer guru Luis Campos has arranged a meeting with Osimhen’s representatives.
And talks are already underway in the background over structuring a potential deal for July.
PSG are bracing themselves for the possible exit of Lionel Messi, whose contract expires shortly.
And there’s also a chance Neymar leaves too after picking up another long-term injury.
The good news for United and Chelsea is that Osimhen himself plans to only make a decision once the season is finished.
Napoli are also in the hunt for the Champions League and he remains focused on delivering a historic season for the resurgent Italian giants.
