Fabrizio Romano: The three clubs who want to sign Osimhen this summer

Victor Osimhen celebrates scoring for Napoli against Barcelona in the Champions League

Fabrizio Romano has revealed the three clubs who want to sign Victor Osimhen this summer.

The transfer aggregator has revealed that PSG, Arsenal and Chelsea are following the Napoli striker ahead of a potential summer bid.

All three clubs are in the market for a top-class striker this summer, and Osimhen fits the bill.

PSG are looking for a replacement for Kylian Mbappe, who is set to join Real Madrid on a free transfer when his contract expires.

Arsenal want a more prolific striker as while Gabriel Jesus has impress din his overall play he does not score enough goals.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are desperate for an attacker who can score goals after another dry season from an offensive point of view.

What did Romano say?

“We have been speaking about PSG, Arsenal and Chelsea for months…for sure these clubs are interested, I don’t think it’s new,” Romano said.

“It’s going to be important to see who is going to make concrete steps to sign Osimhen, but at the moment we’re not at that stage yet; and it’s the same on player side.

“Osimhen is focused on Napoli for now after signing a new contract earlier this season, even if the feeling was that he would probably leave the club this summer, so let’s see what happens closer to June/July.”

FootballTransfers understands that Osimhen has decided to leave Napoli at the end of the campaign.

The Nigerian virtually admitted that he will depart the Partenopei last month in an interview with CBS.

“At the end of the season, I think I already made up my mind,” Osimhen said.

“I already know what I wanna do with my career, since I’ve started, I’ve been the one taking my own decision and everything is working out well for me. Even though when I started it, it didn’t go so well as planned.

“But I already have my plan, I already know what I want to do, the next step I want to take. So for now I just want to finish the season strong, go relax somewhere with my daughter, and then finally come up with the decision I’ve already made.”

The 25-year-old has seen his relationship with Napoli sour this season, following the TikTok scandal in which the club’s own social media team mocked his penalty miss with Bologna.

Osimhen has had a stop-start season on the pitch, while Napoli have endured a disastrous defence of the Scudetto they won last season and are currently seventh in Serie A.
