Victor Osimhen next club: Latest transfer odds for Napoli striker

Following a remarkable spell with Napoli, Victor Osimhen finds himself at the top of the wishlist for European giants. The Nigerian international found the back of the net 31 times in 39 appearances across all competitions, while also providing five assists, contributing to Napoli's success in clinching the Serie A title.

European bigwigs are circulating around the Nigerian attacker and Napoli has rightfully set a price tag of €150 million for the prolific striker.

Premier League powerhouses Chelsea and Manchester United, along with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain are closely monitoring the situation.

We explore the possibilities surrounding Osimhen's next move and examine the latest transfer odds for his potential destination in the upcoming season.

Bayern Munich @ 12/1 (13.00)

Following Sadio Mane's transfer to Bayern Munich last summer, the team struggled to adequately fill the void left by Robert Lewandowski. The former Liverpool star managed to score only seven goals in 25 Bundesliga games. Consequently, Bayern Munich will once again be active in the transfer market, seeking a striker who can provide a guaranteed source of goals.

However, Victor Osimhen is reportedly keen on joining the Premier League for his next challenge, which may affect Munich's pursuit. As an alternative, Bayern has identified Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic as a potential target to join Thomas Muller and Jean-Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in their attacking lineup at the Allianz Arena.

Real Madrid @ 12/1 (13.00)

Real Madrid's midfield has been strengthened with the contract extensions of Luca Modric and Toni Kroos. However, the departure of Benzema to Saudi club Ittehad FC has left a void in Real Madrid's striker position, making them a strong contender in the race for Victor Osimhen.

While Real Madrid has been consistently linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe, no agreement has been reached thus far. In light of these circumstances, Carlo Ancelotti may consider Osimhen as a potential addition to complement dynamic young strikers Rodrygo and Vinicius.

Chelsea @ 9/2 (5.50)

Chelsea is in dire need of a significant offensive upgrade, as they managed to score a mere 38 goals in the previous season. Furthermore, their top goal scorer, Kai Havertz, who only scored seven goals in the Premier League 2022/23, is set to depart for Arsenal in the upcoming summer.

The Blues will once again have to break their transfer record to secure a high-profile addition from Napoli, following Enzo Fernandez's £106.8 million move from Benfica in January 2023. To balance the books, Chelsea is open to considering offers for Mason Mount, with the club hoping to hear bids in the range of £70 million, particularly from Manchester United.

Paris Saint-Germain @ 17/4 (5.25)

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 hinted at not extending his deal in 2024 and potentially leaving the club on a free transfer.

In light of these developments, PSG is eager to acquire a new attacker this season to bolster their frontline and establish a long-term plan. The French club recently 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 @ 7/2 (4.50)

Manchester United has expressed a strong interest in signing Napoli striker Victor Osimhen. In the previous season, only Marcus Rashford reached double figures in league goals, scoring 17 times for the Old Trafford club. 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 for the English captain who turns 30 next month. The high demand for Osimhen could make it difficult to reach an agreement in negotiations, especially since Manchester United are currently involved in the bidding process for the club’s takeover. Reports suggest that Ten Hag has also shifted his focus to Danish youngster Rasmus Hojlund as an alternative option.
