Osimhen coy on Premier League move — Jacobs

Nigerian International, Victor Osimhen is desirous of a move to the Premier League this summer.

Osimhen signed a contract extension until June 2026 with the Serie A champions last December.

The Partenopei are prepared to part company with the Nigeria international who has a release clause in the region of €130m attached to his new deal.

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain as well as Chelsea and Arsenal are the three clubs reportedly interested in signing the forward.

Jacobs revealed that Osimhen’s priority is to move to England at the end of the season.

“We still can’t rule out Arsenal in the race for Osimhen. It’s also true that PSG have Osimhen very, very high on their list of targets and can move in the market because they will free up money due to Kylian Mbappe’s departure,” the journalist told Givemesport.

“I’m still told by sources that Osimhen’s priority is the Premier League, which is encouraging for Chelsea and Arsenal. He would be looking for about £250,000 per week, which Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG would all be happy to pay.”
