Victor Osimhen has already hinted who he would pick out of Chelsea and Arsenal

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has already hinted at his preference when it comes to Chelsea and Arsenal.

Osimhen has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs after developing into one of the deadliest strikers in world football.

The Nigeria international scored 31 goals in 39 games in all competitions for Napoli last season, including 26 in 32 as they won a first Scudetto since 1990.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United have all been touted as potential suitors for Osimhen.

The former Lille man has spoke openly about his dream of playing one day but he holds two of the aforementioned sides in higher esteem.

In an appearance on 'The Obi One podcast' with compatriot and former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel, Osimhen revealed he has the shirts of both Chelsea and United.

"I don’t have a favourite PL team but I’ve two jerseys: Chelsea and Man United," Osimhen said.

"Many friends of mine are Chelsea fans, few are Man Utd fans.

“Premier League is the most appreciated league by every African player — it’s a huge league."

Osimhen has an admiration for Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and what he achieved at Stamford Bridge and journalist Nizaar Kinsella believes Osimhen would "probably pick Chelsea out of three" when it comes to them, Arsenal and Spurs.

Osimhen's contract with Napoli expires in June 2025 and he has reportedly been offered an extension.

It would take a substantial fee and pay package to lure him away from the Naples outfit, with Osimhen turning down a lucrative Saudi Arabia proposal in the summer.

He explained: "What was said is true. I have to be honest, I never thought about leaving last summer because Napoli wanted to keep me, but when the offer came from Saudi Arabia, a huge offer, it was hard to refuse. I spoke to Napoli and decided to stay.

“It was crazy… The more I said no, the more they increased the financial offer. It would have changed my life, they never gave up. But I said, no guys, I’m staying.”
