Manchester United, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain remain in the hunt for Napoli’s star striker Victor Osimhen, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

Napoli is preparing for Osimhen’s departure, with the Nigeria international expected to make his final appearance for the club this weekend in a Serie A match against Lecce at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Osimhen, last season’s Serie A leading scorer, has a €130 million release clause in his contract. Chelsea, Manchester United, and PSG are among the clubs closely monitoring the situation. Gazzetta dello Sport reported last week that Osimhen dreams of joining Chelsea, though this claim has not been corroborated by other sources.

Corriere dello Sport suggests that Lille and Canada striker Jonathan David is Napoli’s top candidate to replace Osimhen. Girona’s Artem Dovbyk is also being considered, and there is speculation that Romelu Lukaku could be included in a swap deal with Chelsea for Osimhen.

In addition to strengthening their forward line, Napoli is also looking to reinforce their defense after selling Kim Min-jae to Bayern Munich last season.
