Bayern Munich have reportedly identified Napoli forward Victor Osimhen as a potential transfer target to replace Robert Lewandowski who is likely to leave this summer.

Lewandowski has spearheaded the Bayern attack, scoring a total of 344 goals in all competitions since 2014.

However, the legendary frontman has stated on several occasions that he wants to leave the Allianz Arena during the summer window.

Should the 33-year-old leave the Bundesliga champions, Bayern would need to find a replacement in a bid to remain as challengers for the Champions League.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Osimhen is very much on Bayern’s radar, albeit for a price which will be significantly higher than they would receive for Lewandowski.

The report suggests that Napoli would not be prepared to do business for a fee less than €110m (£94.15m), a figure which Bayern are unlikely to meet with Sadio Mane having already arrived at the club.

Osimhen has spent the last two seasons in Naples, contributing 24 goals from 51 appearances in Serie A, and three years left on his contract.

Osimhen said: “I know there are many people that would like me in Spain or England, but I don’t think it’s the right time to talk about it now that I’m with the national team. I always go out on the pitch to do my best both with the national team and with my club.

“I don’t know my future, I know anything can happen, but now I just want to go on holiday with my family, clear my head and recharge my batteries. Then we’ll take care of everything else.”

Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid have all shown interest in Osimhen.
