In the world of football, former Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has recently made a bold recommendation for his former club. He believes that Victor Osimhen, currently playing for Napoli, would be the perfect fit for the Red Devils. Osimhen, according to Sheringham, is a “proper number nine,” a term used to describe a classic center forward who leads the line and possesses excellent goal-scoring abilities.
Despite reports linking Manchester United with Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund, Sheringham insists that Osimhen would be a superior choice. He believes that United, a club historically known for signing top-quality strikers, should consider the Nigerian international this summer.
Sheringham shared his thoughts in an interview with Lord Ping, stating, “Manchester United have always brought in top, top quality strikers to help them challenge for the title. But it looks like United may have to look elsewhere for a forward this summer.” He continued, “I am not sure about [Rasmus] Hojlund at Atalanta, but I do really like [Victor] Osimhen at Napoli – he looks like he knows where the goal is. He’s a proper number nine that leads the line.”
Osimhen’s impressive performances in Serie A last season support Sheringham’s endorsement. The Nigerian striker finished as the league’s top scorer, netting an impressive 26 goals from 32 games. His ability to find the back of the net consistently showcases his lethal finishing skills and highlights why Sheringham believes he would be an excellent addition to Manchester United’s attacking lineup.
If Manchester United heeds Sheringham’s advice and secures Osimhen’s signature, they may have found the missing piece to bolster their title challenge. Osimhen’s prowess as a “proper number nine” could be the key to unlocking United’s attacking potential and bringing them closer to domestic and European success.
As the transfer window unfolds, football fans eagerly await any updates on Manchester United’s pursuit of Osimhen. Will they heed Sheringham’s advice and secure the services of this prolific striker? Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain – Osimhen’s potential arrival at Old Trafford would undoubtedly generate excitement and anticipation among the club’s supporters.
