Lille striker, Victor Osimhen, has opened the door to a summer transfer to Manchester United or Arsenal, reports claim.
The Nigeria international was expected to complete an agreement with Napoli this week but is waiting for offers from the Premier League.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed an outstanding debut campaign for Lille since joining from Charleroi for a modest £12.6 million.
Osimhen has scored 18 goals and provided six assists in 38 appearances – including Champions League Group H strikes against Chelsea and Valencia.
His exploits have seen Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all linked with his signature.
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea are even thought to have opened talks with the player and his representatives to discuss a mega-money deal.
However, the quartet looked to have missed their opportunity with Serie A Napoli moving quickly.
Goal claim Lille executives personally met with their Napoli counterparts to discuss the financial terms.
Osimhen also flew to Naples to hold meetings with meeting manager Gennaro Gattuso and club chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis.
“Victor went to Naples with his representatives,” his agent Osita Okolo stated. “We talked and exchanged views on the city: the impressions were good, to tell you the truth.
“Victor isn’t always shy, although he would’ve preferred to make an important decision with less media exposure.
“After meeting De Laurentiis, Giuntoli and Gattuso, he told me he needed some time to make a decision, without any pressure.
“Later this week he’ll drop his concerns and confirm his decision, whether he decides to accept Napoli’s offer or not.”
The report claimed Osimhen is waiting for Manchester United and Arsenal to “step forward” and submit their proposals.
