Victor Osimhen is currently shooting his way into one of the most sought-after goalscorers in all of European football. With his SSC Napoli, he is clearly on course for the title in the Italian championship – and in the Champions League things can go really far for Eintracht Frankfurt’s opponents in the round of 16 this year. Osimhen turned out to be a true terror for Eintracht and scored three times for his colors in the duels (2:0 and 3:0).
In the meantime, the Who’s Who of European club football should be on the striker’s turn, who was under contract in the Bundesliga from 2016 to 2018 but fell behind at VfL Wolfsburg.
Among other things, the 24-year-old should be traded at Bayern as a possible solution for the center forward position, and top clubs from England also have the Nigerian on their list.
Compared to “Sport1”, Osimhen now commented on the rumors about his future, which also link him to England’s record champions Manchester United.
“I don’t know what the future holds. I think I’m on the right track. At the end of the season I’ll sit down with my agents and discuss everything. I’ll also have talks with the club. I’m extremely grateful to Napoli . We will find a good solution together”, the striker was still completely open about how things could continue for him at club level from summer 2023.
The fact is that his current contract with Napoli runs until 2025 and the SSC club management has already indicated that they want to demand at least 100 million euros for their most valuable player in the squad.
Osimhen is ex-Bayern star “eternally grateful”
After Osimhen was praised beyond measure by Eintracht captain Sebastian Rode, among others, the center forward was full of self-confidence: “I think I’m currently one of the best strikers in the world. It’s a great honor for me when I praising the opponents so much.”
The top scorer from Serie A now looks back on his difficult years in Germany at VfL Wolfsburg without any resentment: “Wolfsburg was a very instructive time for me. […] I also learned from these setbacks. The time in Wolfsburg made me who I am today.”
Osimhen also has very special memories of meeting and working together in Wolfsburg with a former German national player and Bayern Munich goalscorer: “I can look back on a special experience, because I played with Mario Gomez. I enjoyed watching him and I learned a lot from him, he guided me when he was there and gave me valuable tips. […] He really helped me a lot. I am eternally grateful to him for that.”
During his time at VfL Wolfsburg, the then teenager was not yet able to assert himself in the Bundesliga and did not score a single goal in a total of 16 competitive games for the wolves.
