Victor Osimhen is the target of three Premier League clubs

The 26-year-old striker was Serie A's leading goal scorer last season, helping Napoli reach their first Italian title after more than three decades of frustration, and now he is preparing to take another big step forward in his career.

The former Lille forward has become the focus of several of Europe's biggest clubs from across the continent, and it has been reported that three teams from the Premier League are now engaged in a fight over him. The three clubs that started fighting for Osimhen's signature are Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool and it seems likely that he will end up playing for one of them in the future.

Victor Osimhen and his statistics

During Napoli's recent championship season, he was able to score 31 goals in 39 games which was a record. Due to this, he was also on Bayern's radar, but it seems that the Bavarians have now completely turned their attention to Harry Kane because of his experience.

Moreover, he has recently been mentioned as the first option for Paris Saint-Germain in case Kylian Mbappe decides to move to Real Madrid in the summer. The fact that Napoli is going to ask for as much as 150 million euros for their big star is quite intriguing.

A deal was struck in principle between Osimhen and Napoli to extend his contract and to tie him down to the club for another two seasons, but Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has stated he will let him go this summer if he receives a "big offer.".

Pedulla, an Italian transfer expert, states that PSG is willing to pay 150 million euros for the great striker, which would make him the main buyer, as English teams are reluctant to pay more than 100 million euros for him, however, the player's desire to continue his career in the Premier League is certainly a factor in his favor.

Prior to joining Napoli, Osimhen played for Lille, Charleroi, and Wolfsburg. He has certainly proven to be one of the best strikers in Europe at the moment and has shown what he is capable of.
