“He’s world class!” – Napoli reporter drops huge Victor Osimhen news involving Man United

Sir Jim Ratcliffe seems to be well aware of the need for new signings and some top players have been backed to move to United in the coming months, ensuring they close the gap on the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal next season.

The Red Devils are believed to be in concrete talks with Bayer Leverkusen wing-back  Jeremie Frimpong  over a summer move to the club, as they look to potentially upgrade on both Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

United’s midfield has struggled badly of late, with  Casemiro particularly out of sorts, and Juventus ace  Adrien Rabiot  has emerged as an option to come in and bolster that area of the pitch.

The Frenchman will be available on a free transfer this summer, assuming he doesn’t sign an extension at the Turin giants.

In attack,  Serhou Guirassy  has been linked with a move to United, as he continues to enjoy a magnificent season for VfB Stuttgart, scoring an incredible  25 Bundesliga goals in only 20 starts.

It looks as though another highly-rated attacking star could also head to Old Trafford, however, following a fresh claim.

Speaking to  Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli [via Sport Witness], Malu Mpasinkatu reports that  Manchester United are “on” the chase for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, but they aren’t alone in that respect.

“From the information I have, at the moment there is talk of Thuram at PSG instead of Mbappe.

The Nigerian (Victor Osimhen) has already played in France; his goal is the Premier League. Manchester United are on him as well as Chelsea.

David? He could be the right profile to replace Osimhen, he is young but has been playing in Europe for several years.

“He has different characteristics from Osimhen, but he is very strong. Lille are an expensive club, but it’s unlikely that the players they sell do badly.”

Osimhen has long been seen as a possible addition for United and he could be a sensational signing, considering his brilliance in a Napoli shirt over the past couple of seasons.

In total, the Nigerian has scored 74 goals in 128 appearances for the reigning Serie A champions.

He has also been described as a “world-class” player by  Jose Mourinho, with the former United manager saying during his time at Roma:

“[Diego] Llorente struggled against [Joshua] Zirkzee but today he won lots of duels against a world-class striker in [Victor] Osimhen, beating him to the ball and pressing him well.”
