Bayern Munich’s interest in Napoli’s Victor Osimhen has been gathering momentum in recent days, with reports suggesting that the club is keen on the Nigerian striker.
The Bavarians are looking to add more firepower to their already impressive attacking lineup, and Osimhen is seen as a player who could make a significant impact.
According to Sky Sports Germany (via Tutto Napoli), Bayern Munich’s new coach, Thomas Tuchel, is said to be a big fan of Osimhen and has been following his progress for some time now.
The Nigerian striker’s speed, technical ability, and goal-scoring prowess are qualities that would complement the team’s style of play and add depth to their attacking options.
Bayern Munich desperately missed the services of a quality striker when they fell 3-0 to Manchester City on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal clash at the Etihad, despite dominating the Premier League champions.
However, any potential move for Osimhen would have to be financially feasible for the club, with Napoli expected to demand a transfer fee of well over €100 million for the Nigerian international.
Osimhen joined Napoli from Lille in 2020 in a deal worth around €80 million, but he has risen to become the most valuable player in the Italian Serie A.
Tuchel’s former employers, Chelsea, have also been credited with an interest in Osimhen, while Manchester United and Newcastle United are known admirers.
