Manchester United have opened talks for the signing of Lille Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.

He, 21, scored 18 goals in his debut season wtih Lille and has since been linked with a host of top European clubs.

The transfer race actually appeared to be all but over earlier this week as reports claimed Napoli were closing in on signing Osimhen in a deal worth more than €50million.

However, United have joined the race at the eleventh hour as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bids to add more fire power in his front line.

And according to CalcioNapoli24, United made contact over signing Osimhen by calling his agent ‘hours ago’ to be updated on his current situation concerning his proposed move to Napoli.

There is a feeling, however, that United’s approach could be nothing more than a ploy from Osimhen’s agent to speed up Napoli’s negotiations and seal a better contract for the young striker.

Nonetheless, Solskjaer is keen on bringing a new forward given Odion Ighalo is only remaining on loan with United until January, and once he departs there will be no attacking cover for first-choice trio Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.

This lack of cover was proven on Thursday, as Rashford, Martial and Greenwood started together for the fifth time in just 17 days as United overcame Crystal Palace to remain in the hunt for a top four finish.
