Reigning French champions, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), are keen to strengthen their attacking options by acquiring the services of Napoli’s highly coveted striker, Victor Osimhen. According to Soccernet.ng, PSG aims to create a formidable partnership between Osimhen and Kylian Mbappé, their World Cup-winning forward, in both Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League.
Although PSG is eager to sign the Nigerian striker, Napoli President, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has placed a hefty price tag of approximately €130m on Osimhen’s signature, which PSG will need to match. PSG is not alone in its pursuit of Osimhen, as English giants Chelsea and Manchester United have also expressed their interest in the 24-year-old forward, along with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
Despite the competition, PSG believes that Osimhen would effectively complement Mbappé’s talents in Paris’ attacking line. Mbappé’s desire to operate alongside a focal point has influenced PSG’s pursuit of Osimhen, making the Nigerian striker an enticing option for PSG.
However, Napoli is reluctant to part ways with their prized asset, and they aim to retain Osimhen for at least one more season as they strive to defend their Scudetto title and make a deep run in the Champions League. Napoli is even considering offering a club-record salary package to entice Osimhen to stay in Naples beyond the upcoming summer transfer window.
In conclusion, PSG is eager to strengthen its attacking force by adding Victor Osimhen to its ranks. The French champions face stiff competition from other European powerhouses, and they will need to match Napoli’s demanding price tag to secure the Nigerian’s signature. Regardless of the outcome, the summer transfer window promises to be an exciting one for football fans worldwide.
