Osimhen's Agent Reveals English, German Clubs Tried To Sign Striker; Why He Chose No. 9
Victor Osimhen's new agent, William D'Avila has revealed that clubs based in England and Germany attempted to sign the striker before his big money move to Napoli.

Though the intermediary has refused to mention the clubs interested in the signature of the Nigeria national-teamer, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal were credited with an interest in the former Lille frontman.

In an interview with Radio Kiss Kiss monitored by TMW, D'Avila was asked to reveal the other clubs that tried to sign Osimhen and he responded : "This is not important. There were clubs in Germany and England. But the most important thing was the final decision, the right one, Napoli. And today he is happy, like everyone else, for this choice."

For the upcoming season, Osimhen will wear the number 9 kit for the first time in his professional career at club level, but a number he has worn with pride for the Golden Eaglets, Flying Eagles, Olympic Eagles and Super Eagles.

Explaining why his client picked the number 9 shirt, D'Avila said : "He's a goal machine. He chose the number 9, but he doesn't give a damn about the shirt number. He just thinks about going on the field and scoring."

The 21-year-old Osimhen became the most expensive African-born player in history after joining Napoli for a fee of 70 million euros, excluding bonuses.
