Manchester United are reportedly asking for Napoli to reduce their asking price for Super Eagles goal getter Victor Osimhen.

The Nigeria international who has netted seven goals from 17 Serie A matches this term, as well as four in the Europa League has attracted offer from the Red Devils who are committed to signing a new striker this summer.

Edison Cavani is primed to leave Old Trafford on a free transfer, amid interest from teams in Brazil, Spain and Argentina, while Ronaldo, Jesse Lingard and Martial may also join the Uruguay international out of the exit door.

Osimhen moved to Napoli for €70m from Lille in 2021, and the Serie A club has put the player’s value at £100m.

United are evidently eager to make a tidy profit amid interest in the forward, who is on Ralf Rangnick’s radar in light of their need for a striker.

The Manchester United interim coach according to various reports, is opposed to the idea of signing super stars such as Erling
Haaland but sees Nigerian forward Victor
Osimhen of Napoli as an option.

For now no decision has been reached. The 23-year-old Nigerian is one of the most exciting and dangerous forwards in Serie A, comfortable acting as a focal point in Luciano Spalletti’s side.
