Premier League Tottenham Hotspur is exploring negotiations for red-hot Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen who is valued at €120 million by Napoli.
This ambitious move comes as Tottenham continue their quest to find a worthy successor to the prolific Harry Kane, who departed the club earlier this summer. The hunt for a new talisman has led Spurs to consider two intriguing options: Ivan Toney from Brentford and the aforementioned Victor Osimhen.
While Toney’s impressive performances for Brentford in the Premier League have earned him a spot on Tottenham’s radar, Osimhen, a Nigerian powerhouse, is the bigger name on the club’s shortlist.
Osimhen’s credentials as a top-class striker are beyond dispute. He played an instrumental role in Napoli’s triumphant Serie A campaign last season, helping the club clinch the league title. His exceptional combination of speed, strength, and clinical finishing ability has made him a nightmare for defenders across Europe.
What’s more, Osimhen’s desire to join Tottenham might be fueled by recent events involving Napoli’s social media antics. The Italian club’s official channels took to TikTok to mock the talented striker, a move that did not sit well with him.
Tottenham’s pursuit of the Nigerian demonstrates their commitment to rebuilding a formidable attacking force. Harry Kane’s departure was a significant blow, leaving a void in the squad that needs filling, even if not immediately.
