Osimhen ‘s future has been one of the most discussed topics since the 2024 winter transfer window opened. According to British media, the Nigerian star is currently being closely pursued by two London clubs, Arsenal and Chelsea. But Osimhen has poured cold water on the two giants above about their ambition to own him this January because the 25-year-old striker has just agreed to sign a new contract with Napoli .
However, Osimhen can still move to a new club in the 2024 summer market because for a long time, the star born in 1998 has considered the Premier League as the arena he wants to conquer . And recently during a conversation on CBS Sports, Osimhen continued to praise this highest division in England.
“There are a lot of rumors that I will move to the Premier League to play football ,” Osimhen said. “When you become one of the most noticed strikers, this is not too surprising. Of course, the Premier League is one of the most attractive leagues in the world. At Napoli, I just signed a new contract with the club, I feel happy there and want to accompany the team until the end of the season. I confirm this. Since the beginning of my football career, I have always had a specific plan. Even though sometimes it doesn’t go according to the right route, I always have the next plan. Now, I have decided on my next stop . “
Osimhen started his football career at Wolfsburg but was unsuccessful in Germany and moved to Lille later. The Nigerian striker immediately had a relatively smooth season, scoring 18 goals in all competitions for the home team Pierre Mauroy before being recruited by Napoli in 2020.
After 3 and a half years of playing football in Serie A, Osimhen gradually became one of the best strikers in the tournament and was valued by the home team Armando Diego Maradona at 120 million pounds.
