Victor Osimhen insists he is happy at Serie A runaway leaders Napoli

Victor Osimhen has insisted that he is loving his time at Napoli amid speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League this summer.

The Nigerian forward has played a leading role in Napoli’s title charge this term, netting 21 goals in 24 league games to help Luciano Spalletti’s men move 14 points clear at the top of Serie A.

His form has not gone unnoticed, with Manchester United keeping tabs on the highly-rated striker, while Arsenal and Chelsea are also keen on securing his signature.

However, Osimhen has made it clear he is more than happy at his current club having become a fans’ favourite since joining Napoli in 2020.

‘We are close to the objective and cannot wait to make our dream come true, to make it a reality,’ Osimhen told TG5 when speaking about Napoli’s push for league glory.

The players always believed, we always thought we could do something exceptional, even when nobody else believed we could. The affection from the city is extraordinary, I have never received so much love. I can’t wait to celebrate with them at the stadium.’

Osimhen revealed last month that he dreams of playing in the Premier League, leaving fans wondering whether he could make the move to England later this year.

But he has stressed that he is delighted with his development at Napoli, and the club will always have a piece of his heart.

‘I’m at a great club and my career is growing constantly,’ he added.

‘I am already at one of the biggest clubs and I could not ask for more. Forza Napoli always!’

Osimhen returned from injury in Napoli’s 0-0 draw with Hellas Verona on Saturday and the team will need him to step up once again when they face AC Milan in the Champions League this week.

Milan won the first leg 1-0 at the San Siro on Wednesday, but Napoli will have their main man back for the return fixture as they look to turn the tie around to progress to the semi-finals.
