Premier League giants Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool are all looking to bolster their teams for the 2023–2024 season, and they have set their sights on Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. Osimhen has been a standout performer for both club and country, attracting interest from top European teams.
According to reports, meetings with Osimhen’s representatives are set to take place in the coming week, and the outcome of these meetings will be crucial in determining his potential move to the Premier League. All three clubs are said to have meetings scheduled with the player’s camp, and the week ahead will define their intentions.
Osimhen has been in impressive form, scoring 26 goals and providing 5 assists in domestic league competitions, contributing to a total of 31 goals in just 39 appearances under the guidance of coach Luciano Spalletti. Chelsea is keen on securing the services of an exciting forward like Osimhen to fill vacant positions amid squad rejuvenation, while Manchester United has identified him along with Harry Kane as one of their top targets.
Although Liverpool may not be in dire need of the Nigerian international, a potential move to Anfield would generate excitement as Osimhen seeks to fulfill his aspiration of playing in the prestigious Premier League.
While there have been no official statements from the clubs involved, the Super Eagles’ attacker’s market value suggests that this summer presents the ideal opportunity for Aurelio De Laurentiis to secure a substantial transfer fee for his services. With all three Premier League giants vying for his signature, it will be interesting to see where Osimhen ends up.
