I’m addicted to winning more laurels, says Osimhen

Premier League transfer target Victor Osimhen has commented on the continued speculation over his future, as Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool remain linked with the prolific striker.

The Nigeria international notched an incredible 31 goals in 39 appearances for the Serie A outfit last season, sparking interest from a number of top sides in the process – with Real Madrid joining the English trio in their admiration for his talents.

Osimhen’s goals led Napoli to their first top-flight title in 33 years, but it’s thought that his stunning campaign would be his last in Naples blue.

But the 24-year-old, who is valued at £100m by Napoli, has now opened up on his chances of swapping Italy for England in an interview with SoccerNet.

At this stage, Osimhen appears pretty adamant about what he intends to do the remaining months of the summer transfer window.

He said: “I have never seen a city crazier about football like the way the Neapolitans are.

“They show all their players love. And wherever I go to, I am being respected. Kids love me, a lot of people admire me, they idolize me by putting on the replica of my mask.

“It shows the hard work I have given to them and what I mean to them. And for me, there’s no better place to be than this place.

“I am so happy I made the right choice by coming here. And achieving this kind of greatness with the Neapolitans is something that I will wake up and always smile about.

“My children’s children will come into this world and realize that their father has done something amazing.”

Osimhen’s stance is sure to disappoint United, Chelsea and Liverpool, who are all on the hunt for a new No.9, although a recent report suggested that Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp have actually cooled their interest in the player.

Money talks, however, and it will be interesting to see what Napoli do if an offer of £100m is actually submitted.

As for Osimhen’s thoughts on Napoli lifting their first title since 1990, when Diego Maradona was their man main, the forward told SoccerNet: “I’m so proud that I am actually a Scudetto winner, for me, it’s a huge one.

“Whatsoever honour that comes after this, I will welcome it. And I am really working hard to make sure, and now I am addicted to trophies because now the Scudetto is my first trophy as a pro.

“Now I’m addicted, and I can’t wait for the new season to come.”
