The Nigerian striker is currently enjoying a prolific campaign at Napoli, with his latest stellar display coming against Eintracht Frankfurt in a round of 16 Champions League tie.

Osimhen scored twice in a 3-0 second-leg win over the German side to take his overall tally for the season to 23 goals in 28 appearances.

Also, he is now being touted for a big-money summer transfer.

Manchester United are among the clubs who have been linked with Osimhen. Indeed, the 24-year-old is ruling nothing out when it comes to his future beyond the 2022-23 campaign.


When asked to respond to United’s reported interest in his services, Osimhen told Sport 1: “I don’t know what the future holds. I think I’m on the right track”.

“At the end of the season, I will sit down with my agents and discuss everything.

“I will also be in talks with the club.

“I am incredibly grateful to Naples.


“We will find a good solution together”.
