Premier League club Manchester United are firm on signing Napoli star Victor Osimhen after making him a priority summer target.
La Gazzetta dello Sport says United are prepared to break the bank and match the British transfer record Chelsea paid for Enzo Fernandez by launching a £107m bid for Victor Osimhen.
The Nigerian international has become United’s top summer transfer target off the back of impressive performances that have seen him score 16 goals and become Serie A’s top scorer.
Osimhen continued his stunning form with a brace in Napoli’s 3-0 away win over Spezia on Sunday which saw them extend their lead at the top of the Italian league to 13 points.
United first-team manager Erik ten Hag has had to rely on an injury-prone Anthony Martial and January loanee Wout Weghorst to lead the line in United’s three-pronged attack this season.
But the Dutchman is keen to bring in a new superstar striker in the summer as he attempts to build on what has been a brilliant stellar debut campaign in charge of the Red Devils.
And Napoli believe the Premier League giants will match the £107m asking price inserted in the 24-year-old’s existing contract.
