The Nigeria international’s form is attracting a host of top clubs in Europe this season, with Premier League sides like Chelsea and Manchester United interested.

Bayern Munich emerge as favourite to sign Victor Osimhen

However, the Premier League clubs are set to miss out on Osimhen’s services, as Bayern Munich are now the favourite to sign the Nigerian striker. 

According to transfer market expert, Plettigoal, Bayern Munich will sign Osimhen this summer, with the Nigerian keen on the move.

The Bavaria giants are looking for a proper number nine following the departure of Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona. 

Bayern are admirers of Osimhen and believe the Nigerian is an ideal replacement for the Poland striker. 

As a result, they will make a move for him this summer, with Osimhen also willing to join the Bundesliga champions. 

However, the Bavaria giants will have to pay a significant fee to sign the ex-Lille man as Napoli are not ready to let their prized asset leave for cheap. 

Osimhen is currently valued at €100m but Napoli will ask for more than that when Bayern Munich come calling in the summer. 

The Bavaria giants are expected to pay about €130m to Napoli for the Super Eagles star’s services. 

Osimhen joined Napoli from Lille for a club-record fee of €75m in 2020. The 24-year-old still has two years left on his contract.
