Various reports have linked the Nigeria international with several clubs, including Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester United.

Victor Osimhen refuses to dwell on a potential Premier League move, insisting his full focus lies with Napoli and their ‘beautiful season’.

The 24-year-old striker has scored 21 goals in 25 games across all competitions, including a league-best of 19 goals in Serie A for the current campaign.

His explosive form has helped fire Napoli into an 18-point lead in the standings and reach the Champions League knockout stages.

“I think it is an ambition of all players. And who knows, one day…,” Osimhen told Corriere della Sera about moving to the Premier League.

“Right now, I assure you, it doesn’t even cross my mind. It would distract me from a beautiful season. Only Napoli.”

Napoli return to action on Friday evening for another Serie A match at home to Lazio. For stats and betting tips, visit the Ace Football preview here.
