Top-tier English clubs, including Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool, have been linked with Victor Osimhen since the previous summer, heightening the anticipation surrounding his potential move to the Premier League.

Contract Extension and Release Clause Drama

In a strategic move, Osimhen extended his contract with Napoli until June 30, 2026, incorporating a release clause of approximately €130 million.

Despite this, it appears the clause may not be a deterrent for clubs keen on securing his services.

Osimhen’s Premier League Ambitions Unveiled

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, as quoted by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Osimhen admitted, “Of course, one day I’d love to play in the Premier League. But for now, I’ve other plans for my career. When the time comes, everyone will know.”

AFCON Focus Amidst Transfer Speculations

Currently active in the ongoing 2023 AFCON, Osimhen has played a game and found the net.

The Super Eagles face a crucial encounter against Ivory Coast on January 18, aiming to secure their place in Group A after a 1-1 draw with Equatorial Guinea.

As the transfer saga unfolds, Osimhen’s dual focus on both the AFCON mission and potential Premier League move keeps fans and clubs alike on the edge of their seats.
