PSG, a “natural step” for Osimhen

Kylian Mbappé on the departure, PSG is targeting a renowned striker this summer. Victor Osimhen holds the rope.

It’s confirmed: Kylian Mbappé is on the verge of putting an end to PSG, after seven years of good and loyal service. To compensate for this absence which promises to be difficult to fill, the capital club plans to recruit heavyweights this summer. The most mentioned name behind the scenes remains that of Victor Osimhen, the Napoli scorer.

In an interview with Goal Poland, Italian journalist and transfer window specialist Gianluca Di Marzio assures that the Nigerian striker’s future is no longer in Campania. “ Osimhen will not stay in Naples. The Napoli president confirmed that his contract extension was only because he deserved a higher salary. (…) There is also a release clause of 130 to 140 million euros. »

“PSG will do everything to sign him”

A trifle for PSG, who will have considerable resources to commit during the summer transfer window, and which does not necessarily leave former Lille player Osimhen indifferent. “ PSG is a natural step for him because he can become the successor to Kylian Mbappé. PSG will do anything to sign him and he has excellent relations with Napoli. This is a logical destination, even if there is no 100% certainty. »

Paris must indeed deal with competition from the Premier League, which is also eyeing the Super Eagle. “ Premier League clubs will also try to get him, but he wants to play in the Champions League “, says Di Marzio. A criterion which seems to eliminate Chelsea, one of the boy’s hottest courtiers. On the other hand, Manchester United is more than credible in the shoes of the English contender. So much so that the Red Devils will most likely be the Parisians’ main rivals on this issue.
