Manchester City signed Norwegian forward, Haaland, last summer and has since scored 28 goals in 26 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s men
Numerous European teams covet the Nigerian Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen. This now includes Manchester City.
The Super Eagles forward’s remarkable performance for Napoli so far has caught the attention of certain European clubs.
Despite the rumours tying him to Manchester United, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City is apparently interested in the Nigerian striker.
The 24-year-old is upping his worth in the transfer market after scoring 19 goals in 21 domestic league games and sitting five goals ahead of Lautaro Martinez, who has 14, in the Serie A goal-scoring standings.
Meanwhile, despite having Julián Álvarez and Erling Haaland on their roster, the Etihad team has reportedly made inquiries about Osimhen, according to recent claims by Transfer Guru, Florian Plettenberg.
“Been told City, #CFC, #PSG & #MUFC are all in! Different talks took place. #MCFC inquired, although they have Haaland/Alvarez. No topic for Bayern. A transfer fee of at least €100 million is not feasible.” He wrote.

Although, previous reports have revealed that Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentiis has shut the door on any transfer links with Super Eagles talisman, insisting that he is not for sale.
But with Osimhen’s goal-scoring record attracting the interest of several European powerhouses, the Parthenopeans will undoubtedly have a busy summer retaining their striker at the Diego Maradona stadium for an extended period of time.
