Milan’s Emergence Spices Up Osimhen Transfer Race

Milan’s management overhaul is expected to bring in a plethora of talent ahead of the next season as Investcorp scheme a 10-year-plan to propel the Rossoneri back to the top of European hierarchy. A host of names having already been linked with a summer move, but the emergence of a new candidate to succeed the striker role at San Siro will undoubtedly raise eyebrows in Milan.

According to latest reports from Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), the new Rossoneri management, backed by the influx of Investcorp funds, would be interested in Napoli’s most valuable player – Victor Osimhen.

The Nigerian marksman is valued by the Partenopei management upwards of €100m despite him possessing a transfermarkt value of €60m. A host of clubs have thus far expressed interest in the highly-rated 24-year-old striker, including Premier League giants Newcastle United, Manchester United and Arsenal.

However, the presence of Milan adds an edge to the burgeoning transfer race that is bound to witness a heated summer fight for his signature.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has never been the one to simplify matters for interested clubs in any of his players, let alone suitors for Osimhen. Milan’s new management will undoubtedly find it hard to boil down a deal, especially with Manchester United and Arsenal in pole positions ahead of the summer window.
