Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has revealed that he will decide his future at the end of the season, but will only leave with Napoli's blessing.
Osimhen is currently one of the most sought after strikers in world football, having made a name for himself in Italy this season.
The 24-year-old scored a brace against Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday, ensuring progression to the Champions League quarterfinals with a 5-0 aggregate victory. The goals take his tally to 23 in all competitions.
Whilst his prolific form has earned him interest from the likes of Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea.
Erik ten Hag is in the market for an elite number nine this summer, and has been heavily linked with the Osimhen.
However, the Red Devils may be forced to break the bank in order to lure him to Old Trafford, with Napoli expected to demand in excess of €100million (£89.7m) for the forward.

"I look up to him. I always wanted to be like him. I’m glad I’m now succeeding in a competition he put his stamp on so much.”
