PSG emerges as front-runners for Napoli star Osimhen

It is now a four-horse race for Nigeria and Napoli star forward Victor Osimhen, ahead of the summer transfer window.

According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have taken the lead in pursuit of the African best.

While the Parisiens position themselves top contenders, other clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United remain in the race.

PSG’s interest in Osimhen follows the impending departure of their star Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid.

Mbappe has been tipped for a major swoop by the Spanish capital this summer, creating a vacuum that needs to be filled by another poacher as good as he is.

PSG believes Osimhen is the right man for their attacking options, and are reportedly ready to table down the figures.

However, a major challenge remains the involvement of the three English giants, especially Chelsea and Arsenal.

These sides have been rumoured as the player’s best options, coupled with a long-life dream to play in the Premier League.
