PSG want to regenerate their squad ahead of next season, so much so that they are willing to let Lionel Messi go! The end goal is clear: bring younger players that can stay put in Paris for a long and grow with the team. One of those plays at Napoli and he already has a price of acquisition.
While not reporting PSG's interest in the said player, Sky Sport Germany published an interesting tweet on Tuesday revealing the price Napoli has quoted their player in the event Bayern Munich want to sign him.
Of course, PSG and their sporting director Luis Campos would love to land a high-caliber forward such as Victor Osimhen, who is reportedly "at the top of his shortlist" ahead of next summer. It might take a bit of an effort, a €130m one if we're precise and according to Sky Sport, to purchase him form Napoli.
Will Bayern Munich and PSG fight again, this time for Victor Osimhen?
It is not surprising to find Bayern Munich as one of the main suitors for the talents of Osimhen. Bayern defeated PSG in the Champions League and are the favorites to win another Bundesliga title this season. Everything makes sense.
Victor Osimhen, though, has been a target of PSG for a long time and he seems to be a priority on Luis Campos' transfer-target plans.
Of course, signing a goalscorer from a team playing in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with Napoli won't be easy, nor will it be cheap. Osimhen will miss the first leg of Napoli's tie with AC Milan, but he has scored 21 goals in 23 Serie A games already this season, more than a large sample to consider him a top-class striker.
According to Sky Sport, Chelsea and Bayern are interested in the player along with PSG, although it's believed that the German side is leading the race to land him next summer. Sky Sport reported that Osimhen "has given his approval" to join Bayern, favoring a move to the Bundesliga if he and Napoli receive an offer from the Bavarian giants.
The same report included a very important detail for PSG to consider: Victor Osimhen's price would be set at around €130m if anyone wants to purchase him from Napoli, something new Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel is already not convinced of paying for his services. Recently, Tuchel said that Bayern would not be willing to go past €100m to land Osimhen.
There might be a bidding war startint at that figure, or Napoli might straight discard Bayern Munich as a potential purchaser. Whatever the case, it feels like this will be another summer soap opera.
