Osimhen admits to desiring a Premier League move

Huge boost for the Premier League as Napoli star Osimhen reveals his desire to play in England

March 7, 2023 By Ali M.
The Nigerian ace, who has established himself as one of the deadliest strikers in world football, admits to wanting to play in the Premier League.

Victor Osimhen is one of the hottest strikers in world football, and given his hefty valuation, links with the Premier League come as little surprise due to the enormous wealth in the English top flight.

The Nigerian forward is currently the top scorer in Serie A with 19 goals in 21 matches and is leading Napoli to a first Scudetto since the days of Diego Maradona. 

And due to the nature of the Italian top flight and Gli Azzurri these days, top Premier League clubs are said to be eyeing the 24-year-old in the hope of prising him away from Naples. Initially, a deal was seen as impractical due to Napoli's stance, with club president Aurelio de Laurentiis stating that they are in no rush to cash in on their star players. Additionally, the player had made no mention of a desire to leave Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, instead opting to focus on their season.

However, the latter has now changed. Speaking to the press following his team's disappointing 1-0 loss to Lazio, Osimhen surprised everyone — and alerted a few Premier League clubs — after publicly admitting to desiring a move to England.

While he made no mention of wanting a move this summer, the former Lile sensation stated that playing in the Premier League is his dream, which will be music to the ears of certain clubs.

"A lot of people worldwide consider the Premier League as the best and the strongest league but now I'm in one of the best leagues in the world which is the Italian Serie A," Victor said, as per Sky Sports.

"I'm working so hard to make sure that I achieve my dream of playing in the Premier League some day but like I said, it's a process and I just want to keep on this momentum and continue to do well."

While no price tag has officially been set, the player will undoubtedly cost an arm and a leg. As a result, Chelsea and Manchester United, two clubs that are in dire need of a no.9 and boast the necessary spending power, have been heavily linked with the Nigerian.

League leaders Arsenal, on the other hand, have a long-standing interest in the attacker that reportedly dates back to his days with Lille. However, with Gabriel Jesus, Eddie Nketiah, Leandro Trossard, and Folarin Balogun all being under their books, it is hard to see the North London giants sanctioning a mega-money move for another striker.

Despite this unexpected admission, Osimhen remains focused on Napoli and their brilliant season. Spalletti's side remain 15 points clear at the top and appear destined to make the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals after beating Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in the 1st leg of their round of 16 showdown.
