Manchester United reportedly contacted Victor Osimhen’s agent as the Red Devils look to make a move for the Lille striker.
The Red Devils have been linked with a summer transfer for the Nigerian International, though Serie A giants Napoli are thought to be leading the race.
It’s reported that the 21-year-old is in advance negotiations with Napoli, though it seems the Red Devils have not given up hope just yet.
Respected journalist Ciro Venerato spoke to CalcioNapoli24 about the race for the player and claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side contacted Osimhen’s agent recently.
Venerato said: “A few hours ago Manchester United phoned Osimhen’s new agent to find out if he had signed with Napoli.
“If an offer from United comes, there would not be many possibilities because they have an economic power superior to that of Napoli.”
United have been linked with a host of names ahead of this summer’s transfer window, including Jadon Sancho and Harry Kane.
And Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that he will have money to spend if he wants to.
