Bayern Munich have voiced concerns over signing heavily-linked Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen from Napoli this summer.
Osimhen has been heavily linked with a move to the German club, but Bayern’s director, Oliver Kahn, has expressed his reservations.
Osimhen had an outstanding season with Napoli, playing a crucial role in the team’s triumph in the Serie A after 33 years. He also helped Napoli reach the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League. With 28 goals in 35 appearances across all competitions, he has become the most sought-after player in Italy, with several European giants vying for his signature.
However, Bayern considers the €150 million price tag slapped on Osimhen by Napoli as too steep and a significant risk for the club. Speaking on the valuation, Kahn said, “When it’s about such a fee, we have to ask the question: does the player give you a guarantee for this money? That would definitely be a big risk.”
Bayern’s stance on Osimhen’s valuation casts a shadow on the striker’s potential move to the German club. While several other clubs remain interested, the 22-year-old’s future destination remains uncertain.
