Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested in signing Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer.

The 24-year-old is enjoying a sensational season in Naples, scoring 26 goals in 31 appearances to help Luciano Spalletti’s go 14 points clear at the top of Serie A.

Chelsea may have an upper hand over Manchester United, however, as Napoli are interested in signing Hakim Ziyech and there is a feeling that he could be used in a deal involving Osimhen, according to The Mirror via Metro.co.uk.

Ziyech enjoyed four impressive seasons at Ajax before a £33m move to Stamford Bridge in 2020 but has flopped in the Premier League.

Given the substantial interest in Osimhen, Napoli will demand a fee of more than £100m to part ways with the striker this summer.
