Osimhen focused on Roma amid Man United interest

Victor Osimhen is having a stellar season and despite the increasing transfer interest from Premier League giants Manchester United, the Nigeria international is fully focused on Napoli’s game against Roma on Sunday (today).

Thanks to the 24-year-old’s recent performances, the biggest clubs in Europe have already set their sights on signing the Nigerian and the Red Devils have been credited with the most interest.

Napoli’s asking price however has almost doubled with the former valuation of €100m no longer enough as Napoli now believe Osimhen to be worth €150m but all talks gas been postponed to June.

According to Italian publication, Osimhen doesn’t want to hear about the future and his only thought is to give the Scudetto to the city and to the fans as he wants to celebrate at the end of the year with the Neapolitan people.

The Nigerian is very concentrated on the present, now his only goal is to beat Roma on Sunday at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium.

The teams contest the Derby del Sole having enjoyed some fine form so far this year – the Partenopei’s advantage at the top has recently grown to 12 points; their visitors have won three of their last four league games.

In their first meeting in Rome earlier this season, Napoli triumphed with Osimhen netting the only goal late on – and are also undefeated in their last four league games at home to the Giallorossi.
