Foot Mercato reports that Paris Saint-Germain is on the verge of reaching an agreement on personal terms with Victor Osimhen’s representatives for a potential blockbuster transfer.
Osimhen has been in the spotlight of transfer speculation due to his impressive goal-scoring record for Napoli this season. He has scored an outstanding 26 goals in 32 games across all competitions, including 21 goals in Serie A, placing Napoli at the top of the league table.
Several top clubs in Europe, including Manchester United, have expressed their interest in signing the Nigerian striker. However, PSG’s progress in personal negotiations may have dealt a blow to United’s hopes of securing Osimhen’s services.
Despite PSG’s interest in him, Victor Osimhen is reportedly not prioritizing a move to the French giants. The Nigerian striker’s main priority is to play in the Premier League, with Bayern Munich also a potential destination.
Although PSG is close to agreeing on personal terms with Osimhen’s representatives, the 24-year-old seems determined to fulfill his dreams of playing in England’s top-flight.
It remains to be seen which English club Osimhen might end up signing for, but his desire to play in the Premier League could potentially rule out a move to PSG.
“I think playing in one of the top five leagues in the world is an amazing feeling for me,” he said last month.
“A lot of people worldwide consider the Premier League as the best and the strongest league but now I’m in one of the best leagues in the world which is the Italian Serie A.”
The Napoli man added: “I’m working so hard to make sure that I achieve my dream of playing in the Premier League some day but like I said, it’s a process and I just want to keep on this momentum and continue to do well.”
Osimhen joined the Naples-based team for a club-record £62 million in July 2020. His meteoric rise has seen him slapped with a whopping £133 million price tag.
