Last season, Osimhen scored 14 goals in Italy’s top flight. In addition, the center forward scored four times in five Europa League games.
At the beginning of June, Osimhen was traded at Bayern Munich. Of the “Corriere dello Sport“The speculation continues to heat up. According to the Italian newspaper, which claims to refer to reports from Germany, FC Bayern could dare to advance and make representations to SSC Napoli.
