Osimhen Will Fit Into Man United – Ighalo Suggests To Serie A Top Striker


Odion Ighalo and Victor Osimhen

Former Manchester United and Super Eagles star, Odion Ighalo, has advised his homeboy, Victor Osimhen, to opt for the Red Devils as he considers which English Premier League side to play for in the future.

Naija News reported earlier that Osimhen who currently plays for Napoli showed interest in playing in the Premier League someday after helping the Serie A side win the league title.

Osimhen was in Rome on Monday to pick the award for the Foreign Athlete of The Year in Italy.

During an interview earlier, the Serie A top goals scorer said he would like to deliver the Scudetto for Napoli fans while he anticipates his future in England.

A lot of people worldwide consider the Premier League as the best and strongest league,” Osimhen said.

“I’m in one of the best leagues in the world, which is the Italian Serie A.

“Of course, I’m working so hard to make sure that I achieve my dream of playing in the Premier League someday, but it’s a process and I just want to keep on this momentum,” the 24-year-old player said.

However, Ighalo thinks that Osimhen will do well at Man United despite the club having some struggles in the league.

The Red Devils are in dire need of a boost in attack and Ighalo believes Osimhen’s style of football is a perfect match for United and urged him to sign for the Red Devils, noting that he would form a perfect partnership with Marcus Rashford.

“I think it’s a good fit. Having Osimhen and Rashford will cause any defender panic.

“If Osimhen asks me for my advice and what he should do, I’d advise him to go join Manchester United because it’s the biggest club.

I think he would fit into Manchester United so well,” the Al Hilal striker told reporters.

Osimhen’s impressive performance has attracted interest from top clubs in Europe, with United, Chelsea, PSG, Liverpool and Real Madrid all keen on signing the Nigerian.

United manager Erik ten Hag has placed the Nigerian top of his transfer target for next summer.
