Osimhen not playing like £100m player – Liverpool legend

Former Real Madrid and Liverpool star, Steve McManaman has stated that Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen is certainly not playing like a footballer worth £100million at the moment.

McManaman alo explained on TNT Sports why he thinks the 25-year-old is destined to play in the Premier League as from next season.

Osimhen will leave Napoli at the end of the season. The Nigeria international has been linked with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking after the Napoli and Barcelona Champions League game, McManaman said Spanish clubs don’t have the funds to take the Napoli star and his best bet is with Premier League teams.

The ex-English player said: “His sellable value, it has to be the Premier League because Germany of course have not got the finances. The big teams in Spain have not got the finances, particularly if Real Madrid take Mbappe.

“The only place he can go is the Premier League and he is certainly not playing like a £100 million player and that is what they want for him.”

Osimhen has had goalscoring troubles in recent weeks. He scored just once at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, before the Champions League tie 1-1 draw between Napoli and Barcelona at the Diego Maradona Stadium in mid-week.
