“I will definitely play in the Premier League. But for now, I have other plans in my career that I’m looking forward to. When the time comes, everyone will know,” he said.

Italian football expert Gaetano Fedele recently disclosed that Napoli’s prolific striker is poised for a summer transfer to the Premier League.

“There is a clause in the renewal contract signed by Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian has already agreed with another club and will leave in the summer,” Fedele affirmed.

“I am convinced that the Nigerian goes to England. Trust me, he knows where to go,” Fedele added.
