FC Bayern Munich is said to have discovered a candidate while looking for a new striker at SSC Napoli. However, the Italians demand a huge transfer fee. There is also interest from Newcastle.
Naples striker as Lewandowski replacement: FC Bayern is looking for a successor to Robert Lewandowski. One option is Victor Osimhen from SSC Napoli. This is reported by the “Corriero dello sport”. The 23-year-old Nigerian impressed with 18 goals and six assists in 32 competitive games last season.
Short, compact, clear
Napoli demands absurd fee: Those responsible for SSC Napoli are said to be demanding 110 million euros for their striker. But it is questionable whether FC Bayern can and wants to pay this transfer fee. Osimhen switched from Lille to the SSC in the summer of 2020 for 75 million euros.
Newcastle as a competitor with purchasing power: In addition to FC Bayern, Newcastle United are said to be interested in the attacker. The nouveau riche English could probably pay a higher salary than the Munich. But Osimhen wants to play the Champions League. Only Bayern can offer that.
