Victor Osimhen makes transfer ‘decision’ amid Premier League links

Victor Osimhen revealed he has already made up his mind about what he wants to do next with his career amid reports linking him with a move to the Premier League. 

The Napoli striker has attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including Arsenal, Chelsea, and Real Madrid.

Osimhen, who is currently representing Nigeria at the Africa Cup of Nations, scored 26 league goals last season to inspire the Partenopei to their first Serie A title in 33 years.

“The rumour is going around about me joining the Premier League,” the 25-year-old told CBS Sports.

“When you are one of the hottest strikers on the globe you expect this type of thing. The Premier League is one of the biggest and best leagues in the world.

“Now I am with Napoli, I signed a new contract, I’m enjoying my time there, going through it with the team.

“At the end of the season, I already made up my mind. I already know what I want to do with my career. I already know the next decision I want to take.

“For now I want to finish the season strong, relax with my daughter, think about my life and then come out with the decision I have already made.”

Osimhen recently stated that he will “definitely” play in the Premier League one day, although he did say he was happy at Napoli right now.

In December, Osimhen signed a new deal with Napoli to extend his contract through to the summer of 2026. The player joined the Italian outfit from Lille for just over £62m in 2020, making him the most expensive signing in the club’s history.
