Transfer: Osimhen perfect for Man Utd – Mikel Obi

Former Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi has said his compatriot, Victor Osimhen of Napoli would be a perfect fit for Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United.

The Chelsea legend allayed fears that the 24-year-old may flop in the Premier League.

“When you look at Victor Osimhen, I mean, he is doing really well for Napoli. He is playing very well. He is going to be in the market in the summer,” Mikel said in an interview with DubaiEye.

“I think Man United are going to go for him definitely. He is doing well for me. I think Victor scores goals. That is what he does. He isn’t very technically good but he will get you goals for sure.”

He added: “I think he would be the perfect fit for them [Man Utd]. He would be the finished article for this United team. They play some really good football now. They’re back playing the way United should play. Again, they’re missing that lethal striker. If they could be able to go for him [Victor], if they could be able to get him, he would be the icing on the cake for them.”

Victor Osimhen is the highest goalscorer in Serie A this season with 21 goals from 23 games. He is one of the most in-demand strikers in the world with Chelsea, PSG, Bayern Munich and Manchester United reportedly plotting big-money moves for him in the summer.
