Victor Osimhen next club betting: Chelsea lead latest odds for Napoli striker

The Victor Osimhen next club betting market will only gain traction as January looms. Here, we have the latest selected odds surrounding his next destination.

Following a remarkable spell with Napoli, Victor Osimhen finds himself at the top of the wishlist for European giants. The Nigerian international – valued in some quarters at around €150m – continues to be a source of nightmares for opposition defences in Italy and across Europe.

Even the most ardent Napoli fans know that their time atop the perch is precious, especially after a less-than-ideal start to their title defence. As such now is surely the time to cash in on their crown jewel Victor Osimhen, whose stock will only rise as he takes on the likes of the Ivory Coast in this winter’s Africa Cup of Nations.

Victor Osimhen next club betting – latest odds

Chelsea @ 8/1

Given Nicolas Jackson’s rough start to life at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are still in dire need of a significant offensive upgrade, as they managed to score a mere 38 goals in the previous season. Put into context, a measly tally of seven was enough for the since-departed Kai Havertz to be crowned ‘top scorer’ for the Blues.

Despite all of the furore surrounding their expenditure, in light of Everton’s recent points deduction, Chelsea remain favourites to land Osimhen. They will once again have to break their transfer record to get their man, and throw caution to the wind as the Premier League looks to wage war on those who break the rules.

Paris Saint-Germain @ 14/1

Paris Saint-Germain couldn’t sign an extension with Lionel Messi, who switched to Inter Miami as a free agent this summer. Additionally, there remains uncertainty surrounding the future of French striker Kylian Mbappe, as Real Madrid has a great interest in PSG forward. Mbappe has previously hinted at not extending his deal in 2024 and potentially leaving the club on a free transfer.

In light of these developments, PSG are eager to acquire a new attacker this season or next summer to bolster their frontline and establish a long-term plan to sustain their vice-like grip on the Ligue 1 crown.

Several months ago, the French club had their initial offer of approximately 100 million euros rejected by the Italian champions. However, PSG could potentially secure Victor Oshimen if they offload Mbappe this summer for a significant transfer fee.

Manchester United @ 16/1

Manchester United have already expressed a strong interest in signing Osimhen. In the previous season, only Marcus Rashford reached double figures in league goals, scoring 17 times for the Old Trafford club. Wout Weghorst, who was brought in as a potential replacement for Ronaldo on loan in January 2023, could only contribute a solitary goal during his time at the club.

Despite United's initial interest in Harry Kane, they withdrew from the race due to Tottenham's demand of approximately £100 million. The high demand for Osimhen could make it difficult to reach an agreement in negotiations, especially since Manchester United are in the midst of a takeover after a dismal start to 2023/24.

Rasmus Hojlund has since arrived on the scene too, and would certainly make for an interesting partner alongside Mbappe in the final third. That said, the proverbial jury is still out on the Dane, who went into the November international break yet to score a single league goal for the Red Devils, with his only goalscoring games ending in high-scoring UCL defeats.
