Victor Osimhen has sent Manchester United and Chelsea fans into a frenzy after his recent comments about a potential transfer. The Nigerian international has been linked with a move to both clubs in recent weeks, and his latest comments have only added fuel to the fire.
The 21-year-old striker currently plays for Lille in the French Ligue 1, and has been in impressive form this season, scoring 18 goals in all competitions. His performances have attracted the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs, with both Manchester United and Chelsea reportedly interested in signing him.
Osimhen recently spoke to French media outlet L’Equipe about his future, and his comments have sent both sets of fans into a meltdown. He said: “I am very happy at Lille, but I am also ambitious. I want to play at the highest level and win trophies. I am open to all possibilities.”
The comments have been interpreted as a hint that he could be open to a move away from Lille, and both Manchester United and Chelsea fans have been quick to react. Manchester United fans have been particularly vocal, with many calling for the club to make a move for the Nigerian international.
Chelsea fans have also been vocal in their support for Osimhen, with many believing that he could be the perfect replacement for Olivier Giroud, who is expected to leave the club this summer.
Osimhen’s comments have certainly sent both sets of fans into a frenzy, and it remains to be seen whether either club will make a move for the 21-year-old. However, one thing is for sure – the Nigerian international has certainly put both Manchester United and Chelsea on red alert.
