Napoli striker Victor Osimhen only has two Premier League shirts in his collection.

Victor Osimhen has dropped a transfer hint by revealing the two Premier League shirts he owns.

Osimhen has emerged as one of the hottest striking properties around and fired Napoli to a first Scudetto in 33 years last season, notching 31 goals in 39 games in all competitions.

The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been linked with the Nigerian, whose price tag has been rated at around £150 million.

Osimhen has a contract which runs until 2025 but he has made no secret of his desire to play in the Premier League one day.

The former Lille man doesn't support a Premier League team but he has admitted to having the jerseys of both Chelsea and United in his collection.

"I don’t have a favourite PL team but I’ve two jerseys: Chelsea and Man United," Osimhen said on 'The Obi One podcast' with compatriot and former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel.

“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."

According to Fabrizio Romano, Osimhen has been offered a new contract at Napoli but is yet to agree a contract extension.

He said: "From what I'm told, Victor Osimhen hasn't agreed anything with any club - not even Napoli. There's no agreement on the contract extension."

The striker had been odds with the club following a bizarre and controversial video which was posted on the club's TikTok page after a penalty miss against Bologna.

Napoli were then forced to issue a statement, stressing that they did not to intend to offend their No.9.

In the podcast with Obi Mikel, Osimhen revealed that rumours of a €200 million offer from Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal were indeed true and the proposal was "difficult" to turn down.

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.”
