Nigerian star Victor Osimhen is said to have attracted interest from Manchester United with reports in the media suggesting that a move in the January transfer window could be on the cards.

In following the likes of Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez, Osimhen is now emerging as a hot prospect for big clubs in Europe. It is believed that the Red Devils view the Napoli forward as a long-term target for their attacking department.

Also, the Mirror reports that United have identified Kylian Mbappe as one of the candidates to replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Carrington and that the English giants could fork out some £150 million for the Frenchman.

However, the same report mentioned that Osimhen is a ‘more attainable’ target in the January transfer window. While Mbappe is seen as the ‘dream’ signing for United, Osimhen’s valuation of £60 million could prompt United to pursue the African star.

Other than the 20-time English League champions adding Osimhen to their radar, Chelsea and Liverpool have reportedly showcased interest in the prolific Serie A star as well.

That being said, it remains to be seen where the Nigerian will end up next as a move away from Napoli draws ever closer.
