Napoli’s Victor Osimhen has confirmed that Premier League clubs are interested in signing him this summer.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a successful campaign at Napoli, scoring 18 goals in 32 appearances in all competitions.

Osimhen’s form has attracted interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid, while the Evening Standard reports that Arsenal have already bid £51m for the Nigeria international, which falls short of Napoli’s reported asking price of £85m.

With rumours circulating about a possible move away from Italy, Osimhen addressed his future while on international duty with Nigeria.

Osimhen was quoted by Calciomercato, stating: “I know there are many people that would like me in Spain or England, but I don’t think it’s the right time to talk about it now that I’m with the national team. I always go out on the pitch to do my best both with the national team and with my club.

“I don’t know my future, I know anything can happen, but now I just want to go on holiday with my family, clear my head and recharge my batteries. Then we’ll take care of everything else.”

The forward has scored five goals in the current international window, including a four-goal haul in Nigeria’s 10-0 win over Sao Tome & Principe.
