Victor Osimhen Set to Depart Napoli, Real Madrid, PSG, and Premier League Clubs in the Race


Victor Osimhen, the Nigerian striker and top scorer for Napoli, is set to leave the club in the summer, as confirmed by Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis. Osimhen’s destination is currently a matter of speculation, with De Laurentiis mentioning Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, or a top Premier League club as potential suitors.

Osimhen, who was the top scorer in Serie A last season with 26 goals, has significantly contributed to Napoli’s success, helping them secure their first league title since 1990. Despite recently signing a contract extension with Napoli until 2026, which includes a release clause of around €125 million, his departure has been anticipated.

Chelsea has emerged as a leading contender for Osimhen’s signature, although other Premier League giants like Arsenal and Manchester United also hold an interest. The future of Kylian Mbappe at PSG could influence Real Madrid and PSG’s pursuit of Osimhen.

Osimhen himself hinted at a departure in the summer, indicating that he has already made up his mind about his next step after the season ends. Reports have suggested that Osimhen has agreed to join Chelsea following discussions with former Blues striker Didier Drogba.

This move marks a significant moment in Osimhen’s career and is a key development in the summer transfer market, with several of Europe’s top clubs vying for the Nigerian striker’s services.
