In the ongoing transfer saga surrounding Victor Osimhen, Bayern Munich are keen to stay as a significant contender for the Nigerian goal machine, Soccernet.ng reports.
The battle for Osimhen’s signature has drawn the attention of several top European clubs, each vying for the services of the highly sought-after striker.
English powerhouses Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United have all expressed their interest in acquiring the services of the Super Eagles star.
Reports suggest that representatives from these Premier League clubs will meet with Osimhen’s camp this week to discuss a potential move.
However, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) reportedly made an initial move in the race by submitting an offer of €100million to Napoli for Osimhen.
Unfortunately for the French giants, Napoli swiftly rejected their proposal, indicating their desire to hold onto the talented striker if their financial expectations were unmet.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich, who have been eyeing Tottenham’s Harry Kane, are also keen on securing Osimhen’s services.
According to today’s edition of Corriere del Mezzogiorno, as per the German media, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have verbally presented an offer to Napoli for Osimhen, aiming for a marquee signing.
However, it appears that Bayern may currently be unable to meet Napoli President De Laurentiis’s valuation of €150 million.
Napoli, who recently clinched their first league title in 33 years, are equally determined to retain Osimhen for at least another season as they seek to defend their Scudetto crown.
The Italian champions are working to build a formidable squad capable of repeating their success in the upcoming campaign.
