FC Bayern, rumor: Osimhen would like to switch to FCB

28 competitive games, 23 goals, five assists: That’s Victor Osimhen’s record this season at SSC Napoli. So it’s no wonder that the 24-year-old Nigerian is on everyone’s lips at the moment and is repeatedly associated with FC Bayern.

Loud sky the striker would “love to” move to Munich – although he dreams of an engagement in the Premier League. The problem: Osimhen, who is still under contract with Napoli until 2025, is too expensive for the German record champions. It would probably cost well over 100 million euros, plus there would be a salary in the higher double-digit million range.

According to the report, Osimhen was offered to Bayern last summer. However, it was never hot and it won’t be next summer either, writes sky.

Osimhen joined Napoli from OSC Lille in 2020. From 2017 to 2019 he was under contract with VfL Wolfsburg.

Bayern Munich News: Osimhen or Kane? “A No Brainer”

Didi Hamann is also enthusiastic about Osimhen. If the former German international had the choice between the Nigerian and Harry Kane, who has been a topic around FC Bayern for months, he wouldn’t have to think twice.

“If the question was ‘Osimhen or Kane?’ that would be a no-brainer for me,” Hamann wrote in his column sky: “Osimhen is in a different league and, for me, the best striker in Europe at the moment. He’s fast, has the ability to jump, is technically adept, shoots with both feet. He would fit into the Munich team better than Kane because he’s a playing center forward and has speed .”

The Munich team only extended the contract with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting by one year until 2024. “But he will soon be 34 and the question is how Bayern want to position themselves in the attack center in the future,” said Hamann.

Osimhen would therefore be the ideal solution, Hamann believes: “But financially it’s probably not feasible for Bayern.”

FC Bayern, News: Champions League draw on Friday

This Friday, the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the Champions League will be drawn in Nyon (12 p.m. in LIVETICKER). FC Bayern is also looking forward to Switzerland and is waiting for its next opponent.

There are no longer any restrictions. This means that coach Julian Nagelsmann’s team could meet any club that is still represented.

In the raffle are: FC Chelsea, Benfica Lisbon, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Manchester City, SSC Napoli and Real Madrid.

In a duel with Manchester City, Hamann would see Munich at an advantage. “The great strength of Munich compared to Manchester City is their incredibly dense squad. Sadio Mane is fit again, you can put Thomas Müller in the front and you still have Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry on the offensive,” said the former Bayern pro at sky.

For him, City, Napoli and Real are on the same level. “There are no easy opponents, but for Bayern one of the two Milan clubs would probably be the best task to solve,” said Hamann.

Still, it’s not a big surprise to me that only Bayern Munich are now in the quarter-finals.”

Borussia Dortmund was “a bit unlucky to be eliminated from Chelsea, but Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig didn’t stand a chance,” added Rummenigge on the sidelines of the Women’s Sport Summit DAZN.

Bayern, on the other hand, “played convincingly,” said Rummenigge. Despite the two victories against Paris St. Germain, he hopes that the team will face the upcoming opponent “with respect and concentration” and “don’t believe, like last year, that there are easy opponents in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Because they exist not.”
