Victor Osimhen is set to leave Napoli at the end of the season, and La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the Nigerian international could be “up close and personal” with Erling Haaland next season.

Osimhen made headlines in Italy after scoring the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 on Wednesday. The Nigerian international recently signed a contract extension at the Stadio Maradona, but is still expected to leave the Partenopei at the end of the season. His new contract, expiring in 2026, includes a release clause in the region of 120 to 130 million euros. Chelsea and Arsenal are among the clubs linked with securing the striker’s services next summer La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that the 25-year-old could join the Premier League next summer. “Many consider him to be the best striker in the world after Haaland, whom he could be up against next season,” writes journalist Vincenzo D’Angelo. Osimhen recently returned from the CAN and has scored nine goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for Napoli this season.
