According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Magpies are pushing to facilitate a transfer for the Napoli striker in the transfer window. Valued at around £86m, Newcastle are reportedly open to paying huge money for the striker.
Victor Osimhen has been linked with a move away from the Serie A club with reports claiming Newcastle as favorites. The Magpies rate the striker as a high profile in their list and want to secure his services this summer.
This isn’t the first time Eddie Howe’s side has been interested in the striker. Back in January, Newcastle had made efforts to sign Osimhen but the transfer was not possible.
The Magpies believe they can pull off the transfer this summer for the striker offering Napoli a huge sum.
What can Osimhen bring to Newcastle United?
The Napoli ace has been one of the hottest prospects in the world of football in recent times. His performances on the pitch have been phenomenal, so much so that Newcastle is willing to pay a blockbuster fee.
Osimhen has amassed 18 goals in 32 outings with the club while providing six assists across all competitions. Moreover, the numbers and how he carries himself on the pitch have been very lethal in the Italian League.
The striker’s pace and the runs in the final third have proven to be effective for his club. Moreover, with his lethal attacking prowess, Newcastle’s front line would be bolstered ahead of the forthcoming season.
The inclusion of Osimhen’s profile in the Magpies squad could be the differentiating factor this summer. However, the transfer has not yet gone through but the gaffer seems to be heavily invested in the player.
