Victor Osimhen is expected to reject transfers from Chelsea and Arsenal in favor of an unanticipated deal.

Victor Osimhen is expected to reject transfers from Chelsea and Arsenal in favor of an unanticipated deal.

Despite strong Premier League interest in the striker, Victor Osimhen has been tipped to join Juventus by Alessandro Matri, a former member of the team.

 

The Nigerian recently signed a new contract with Napoli as he keeps getting better in Serie A. With Osimhen leading the Naples team to their first top flight championship since Diego Maradona’s time, many of Europe’s biggest clubs are eager to sign the marksman.

 

Osimhen recently signed a contract with a sizable release clause—a clause that teams like Chelsea and Manchester United might be willing to pay. But now that Napoli is looking for a prolific forward, Juventus is being mentioned as a possible destination, even though the player’s release clause isn’t valid for the team’s domestic rivals.

“I would not rule out Osimhen going to Juventus,” he stated on DAZN. If Vlahovic has a successful season, he may fetch €70 million when sold, and Matias Soulé may also turn a tidy profit. The acquisition would not be unaffordable, and remember that Juventus has made similar purchases in the past with Gonzalo Higuain. They were able to save money this season, and should they make it to the Champions League, they would have more money to spend.

 

Despite the intense rivalry between Napoli and the Old Lady, Higuain’s transfer was approved. Juventus may be ready to put Napoli to the test because they have demonstrated that they are willing to part with their best players for the right price.

Since Higuain was initially successful in Turin, the Italian team is looking to bolster their offensive line. Because of their poor season, Napoli might not be able to play in Europe at all, which would make retaining Osimhen even more difficult.

 

The Nigerian acknowledged in a recent interview that, while he is happy at Napoli right now, he does have aspirations to play in England in the future. “One day, definitely, but for now, I have other plans in my career that I am looking forward to,” he said to Sky Sports. Thus, everyone is aware when the time comes.”

 

Osimhen continued, saying, “I am pleased with the president. We get along well, me and him. I am unable to lie. He has been a part of my life since I joined the team in 2020. I am in good terms with his family as well, and no matter what has happened, I always want to make sure that we are in good terms and that nothing is wrong.”

 

Since joining Napoli in the summer of 2020 after leaving Lille, Osimhen has scored 67 goals for the team and is currently vying for AFCON glory.
