Man United target Napoli striker, ideal choice for Ten Hag

Posted : 06 March 2024

According to recent reports, Manchester United has identified Napoli's centre-forward Victor Osimhen as a potential target. The Red Devils are reportedly looking to secure the services of the Nigerian striker, but they face strong competition from Chelsea in their pursuit this summer. 

Osimhen has been delivering a solid campaign for the Italian club, showcasing impressive performances as the focal point of their attack. In 22 matches across all competitions this season, the 25-year-old has scored 13 goals and provided four assists.

Osimhen has demonstrated his effectiveness as a striker, averaging 3.2 shots and 0.7 key passes per 90 minutes in Serie A. However, his ball distribution in the final third has been somewhat inconsistent, with a pass completion rate of 70.1%. With his current contract at Napoli set to expire in the summer of 2026, acquiring Osimhen may pose a challenge for Manchester United if they wish to secure him at a reasonable price.

The Nigerian forward utilizes his strong 1.86m frame to execute clever turns inside the opponent's penalty box and has proven to be a reliable finisher. While he can create chances for his teammates in the attacking third, there is room for improvement in his link-up play. Osimhen's potential addition to Manchester United's attack would undoubtedly bring a significant quality boost, making him a desirable option for the club in the upcoming summer transfer window.

At 25, Osimhen has a promising future ahead of him and could be a valuable acquisition for Manchester United at the end of the current season. However, the key question remains whether he can maintain his impressive form in the highly competitive environment of the Premier League.
