In recent days, there have been repeated reports that FC Bayern is interested in signing Victor Osimhen. Now there is an interesting update in the transfer poker: The SSC Napoli striker is said to have signalled that he could very well imagine a move to Munich.
News on the football transfer market can come at a rapid pace. On Easter Monday, reports made the rounds that the FC Bayern management was holding initial talks with Victor Osimhen’s management. One day later, the Napoli professional’s move to Munich became even more concrete. According to Sky reporter Florian Plettenberg, the 24-year-old striker has now expressed his desire to join FC Bayern in the summer.
Transfer fee will be decisive in the end
The chances of a transfer of Victor Osimhen to FC Bayern should be significantly higher due to this circumstance. However, the transfer fee remains the biggest problem: Napoli are demanding up to 130 million euros for the Nigerian star player, but Bayern do not want to spend more than 100 million euros on a new striker. Further talks between Bayern bosses and Osimhen’s management are now expected in the coming weeks.
In the current season, Osimhen scored a total of 21 goals in 23 Serie A games and also contributed five assists. Between 2017 and 2018, the brawny attacker was under contract with VfL Wolfsburg, but failed to make a lasting impression there.
