Serie A outfit Napoli has line up two forwards as potential replacement for Super Eagles star, Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen joined the Partenopei last season from French Ligue 1 side Lille for a fee of £67million in 2020.

The 23-year-old striker has been phenomenal for the Naples side this season, netting 16 goals and 6 assist for Luciano Spalletti's team.

This performance has caught the eye of most clubs in Europe.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Newcastle United are all reportedly interested in signing the ex Lille attacker.

Napoli are likely to cash in on the young Super Eagles forward should any club meet their asking price.

Italian transfer expert, Nicolo Schira reports that Napoli is keeping tabs on Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca and Chelsea's loanee, Armando Broja as possible replacement for Osimhen in case he leaves in the summer.
