Paris Saint-Germain are poised to embark on a colossal mission to secure the services of Victor Osimhen, with the Napoli striker reportedly becoming one of the first requests made by potential new manager Julian Nagelsmann.
The next few weeks promise to be a period of intense speculation surrounding Osimhen’s future.
PSG have long harboured a fondness for the talented Nigerian striker, viewing him as the ideal strike partner for their star player, Kylian Mbappe.
However, any decision regarding Osimhen’s fate will hinge on the appointment of PSG’s new helmsman.
The leading candidate for the role is former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann, who happens to be a fervent admirer of the Nigerian forward.
Nagelsmann previously had Osimhen on his radar at Bayern Munich, having identified him as a potential signing.
The interest in Osimhen has resurfaced, with the Parisian club designating him as their primary target for the upcoming season.
According to insiders at Radio Punto Nuovo (as per Tutto Napoli), relations between PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo Campos, and Osimhen’s representatives are excellent.
In recent months, preliminary discussions have taken place between the two parties, hinting at the possibility of a significant move.
However, the definitive turning point in this saga hinges on the appointment of Nagelsmann.
While an agreement is reportedly on the horizon, some minor details still require ironing out.
Sources close to the French club confirm that Osimhen’s name was among the initial requests made by Nagelsmann during talks regarding potential signings.
Although formal negotiations have yet to commence, PSG is gearing up to strike a significant blow in the transfer market.
Osimhen this season scored 31 goals across the UEFA Champions League and Serie A, becoming the first African to win the Italian top-flight’s top goalscorer award.
