Despite Paris Saint-Germain's strong interest in acquiring Napoli striker Victor Oshimen, the player's strong inclination towards the Premier League seems to have swayed the balance in favor of Manchester United.
Osimhen, who played a crucial role in Napoli's Serie A title win with 23 goals, is highly coveted by several clubs as they search for a new number nine. Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Chelsea are among the prominent clubs in need of a striker and have been linked with Osimhen, along with Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt and Harry Kane from Tottenham.
It is anticipated that Osimhen's price tag will exceed £100 million, potentially making him the most expensive striker in history, surpassing Romelu Lukaku's £97.5 million transfer to Chelsea in 2021, unless Antoine Griezmann and Joao Felix are considered as strikers.
In order to land the Nigerian forward, Erik ten Hag's side will need to sell several players of its own. Speculations are rife that the Danish coach is planning to sell club captain Harry Maguire, along with others, to meet the requirements of acquiring new players.
It is seen, that the 24-year-old will be more inclined to join an English club as he 'loves the Premier League", and the rumored €150m asking price for the Nigerian player can be fulfilled by Manchester United.
