In-form Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has admitted to the speculations surrounding his potential move from the Diego Armando Maradona stadium.

The 23-year-old is on the wish list of many European top giants going into the summer transfer window following his remarkable season with Serie A outfit Napoli.

The former Lille man ended the previous campaign as Napoli's top scorer with 18 goals in 32 appearances despite being sidelined with a facial injury.

The Nigerian international was also voted Serie A best young player of the season.

Speaking in an interview with NFF TV after Sao Tome's drubbing, the forward admitted to the rumours surrounding his move away from Naples.

“There’s a lot of rumours going on in the media, but anytime can happen. You don’t know what is going to happen in the summer.

“I just want to go to my family and refresh my mind. And when the right time comes, I will talk about my future.” He said as per Soccernet.

Osimhen has scored five goals in his last two games for three-time African champions.

Arsenal, Manchester United, and Newcastle United are all rumoured to be interested in the signature of the young attacker.
