Victor Osimhen is one of the best strikers in the world and has been linked with some major clubs, and now Alan Shearer has thrown Newcastle United into the mix.
Alan Shearer believes that Napoli striker Victor Osimhen should consider a move to Newcastle United.
The BBC Sport pundit has noted that when Manchester United were going for their treble back in 1999, they had a number of strikers.
Shearer has said that the 24-year-old Nigeria international striker should be serious about a potential move to Newcastle.
The Sun has reported that Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all are monitoring the situation of Osimhen at Napoli.
The 24-year-old Nigeria international striker has been involved in a row with his club Napoli over TikTok videos.
Alan Shearer wants Victor Osimhen to join Newcastle United
Speaking on The Rest of Football podcast, Shearer mentioned Newcastle United as a potential destination for Osimhen.
Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker responded: ”You’ve got two strikers, Alan, you’ve got Isak and obviously Callum Wilson.
“You need another one, do you?”
Shearer replied: “Well, I don’t think it would do any harm.
“When Man United won their treble, they had four, if you remember rightly.
“If he wants a bit of love, if he wants a bit of love, then St James’ Park.”
Victor Osimhen unlikely to join Newcastle United in January 2024
We do not think that Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will move to Newcastle United in the January transfer window.
There is no way that Napoli are going to sell arguably their most prized asset in the middle of the season.
After all, Napoli are aiming to win the Serie A title again this season and are also playing in the UEFA Champions League.
Osimhen is a superb striker who is still only 24 and has huge potential.
The Napoli no. 9 has scored four goals in six Serie A matches so far this season.
The striker scored 26 goals and provided four assists in Serie A and scored five goals in the UEFA Champions League for Napoli last season.
