The Nigerian played brilliantly during his time at Napoli and helped his side win their first Serie A title in more than three decades last season.
He continued to score regularly and these goals attracted the attention of Europe.
This summer, several English teams are looking to buy a new number 9.
United have finally agreed a deal for Rasmus Hojlund while Chelsea are yet to return to the market as they look to resolve their problems in the final third.
Osimhen has been on their radar this summer and the player himself has spoken out about England’s top flight and the Blues.
He said on The Obi One podcast: “I don’t have a favorite Premier League team but I have two shirts: Chelsea and Man United.
Many of my friends are Chelsea fans, few Man United fans.
” Osimhen also added: “The Premier League is the tournament most loved by all African players – it’s a big tournament.
” Osimhen broke the 30-goal record for the first time last season and has scored six times in 10 appearances this season.
The player and his club were embroiled in a dispute earlier this season after posting a TikTok video appearing to mock the striker as he took a penalty This situation has since been resolved, with Osimhen emphasizing his commitment to the Italian side.
However, interest in the striker remains strong and Napoli have shown they are willing to part with their top talent for big money over the years.
The Nigerian footballer must consider a huge offer from Al-Hilal this summer as Saudi Arabian clubs begin to raid European talent while also strengthening their financial muscle.
Osimhen ultimately stayed but admitted it was not easy to turn down such “crazy” numbers.
He confessed: “What was said is true.
I have to be honest, I never thought about leaving last summer because Napoli wanted to keep me, but when the offer came from Saudi Arabia, it was so big, it was hard to refuse.
I talked with Napoli and decided to stay.
