Numerous teams in Europe, notably those in the English Premier League, have gotten wind of Victor Osimhen’s remarkable performance for Napoli so far this season.
According to a previous report from Soccernet.ng, Manchester United, and Chelsea are interested in the Nigerian attacker as they strive to improve their rosters.
While the Red Devils and the Blues drew 1-1 at Stamford Bridge and still have to play each other in the rematch in less than two months, they are both hoping to take their conflict off the field by competing for the Super Eagles talisman’s signature.
The 24-year-old is undoubtedly on the road to greatness and is at the top of the curve, leading the Serie A league scoring table with 16 goals and 4 goals ahead of Ademola Lookman. However, it is reasonable to acknowledge that now may not necessarily be the best time.

It is best for the Super Eagles attacker to disregard the battle and focus on what is best for his career while the two lions are wrestling.
Given his youth, he still has plenty of time to learn about the European league, take home additional club titles, and even the Scudetto at Napoli, should he chose to remain.
The Nigerian may also think about joining Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga, where he will have the greatest opportunity to be nominated for the Ballon D’Or or, ideally, win it.
He would unquestionably be an excellent addition to Erik ten Hag’s team, where he would easily link up with players like Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, just as he is doing at Napoli with his Georgian colleague, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
He would be the ideal signing for the London giants at Stamford Bridge, however, since the club is unable to identify a top striker. Although Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was brought in to replace that spot, he has only managed to score once in 11 league games while only starting four of them.
Even though, Osimhen should put his own growth first and disregard any financial gain, the celebrity in the English media, or deals these clubs may provide.
