Victor Osimhen will likely be this summer’s biggest mover, Andrew Walker reports for the CaughtOffside outlet.


The Napoli striker has been heavily linked with a move away from Serie A for over a year. Although he signed a new contract just six months ago, he is still expected to leave Naples at the end of the current campaign.

Nigeria’s Osimhen, 25, has long been linked with a high-profile switch to Stamford Bridge. He is believed to be a top target for Chelsea.


However, according to more recent reports, including this one from Fichajes, the Blues face more and more competition as the weeks go by.


Newcastle United enters Victor Osimhen transfer race


Not only are Arsenal and Manchester United believed to have the prolific 25-year-old on their radars, but Newcastle United is also believed to have that.


Despite enduring a tough and disappointing season so far, Eddie Howe’s Magpies, just like the teams above, are also set for a meaningful and busy summer window.


Hoping to sign Osimhen — a player capable of firing them to the next level — Newcastle, with the help of their Saudi-backed ownership, have been tipped to join the race to sign the African. The striker’s contract is thought to contain a release clause worth a staggering €130 million (£111 million).
