Robert Lewandowski has left Bayern Munich for Barcelona. Now, the German club see Victor Osimhen as a potential replacement for the Polish forward.
According to Naples-based outlet Il Mattino, Bayern Munich recently made contact with Napoli to understand the status of Victor Osimhen. The German club was reportedly keen to know whether the Italian club was open to selling the striker.
But having listened to Napoli’s asking price of around €100 million for the goal poacher, Bayern have decided to reconsider their interest.
In short, they have no intention of paying that amount for the Ivorian sharpshooter this summer. Besides Osimhen, the Bavarian giants also enquired about Piotr Zieliński.
Julian Nagelsmann is an admirer of the Polish playmaker and thus wants to get him on board amid this summer transfer window.
While Osimhen has a contract at Napoli until June 2025, Zieliński’s current terms at Naples expire in June 2024. The report claims that the 28-year-old would prefer a move to La Liga.
The Serie A side is also willing to sell the player, meaning that a potential exit for the compatriot of Lewandowski is on the cards.
