Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, has said that the lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia would’ve changed his life and revealed why he chose to reject the offer although it was a tough choice.
The Nigerian striker was the star of the show in the Campania capital last season during their historic Scudetto success, scoring 26 goals and providing five assists across 32 league games. He stood out as one of the most dangerous centre-forwards in Europe, attracting widespread attention from the biggest clubs in the World including Manchester United and Chelsea.
Speaking to John Obi Mikel on the ‘Obi One Podcast’ via Calciomercato.com, Osimhen gave his thoughts on the Premier League and which clubs he likes.
Mikel had first called Osimhen to head to Chelsea next summer, joking about acting as an intermediary.
“Next season I know you will come to Chelsea man! I tell you, I will be the agent who will broker that deal. I will make sure it happens. We are desperate for someone like you since Drogba left the club.”
To which the 24-year-old responded that he has two clubs he considers moving to in the EPL.
“I don’t have a favourite Premier League club, but I have two shirts, Chelsea and Manchester United. Many of my friends are Chelsea fans, a few Man United. The Premier League is the most popular league for any African player, it’s a great league,” Osimhen said.
