Calculus of mass.According to reports,
Tottenham Hotspur has decided to replace Brentford striker Ivan Toney with Victor Osimhen, a top player for Napoli.
Osimhen is reportedly still “in the sights of many top European clubs,” some of whom may launch a “decisive assault” on the striker in January, according to the article.
The source continues, saying that Tottenham is reportedly one of the Nigerian’s admirers, and that “the Premier League sirens continue to sound” for him.
It is claimed that if the 24-year-old’s contract expires in 2025 and Napoli is unable to go forward with negotiations for a new deal, the Italian team may list the player for sale.
Calculus of mass.It continued by claiming that the striker is “within reach” of Spurs and that the defending Serie A champions will seek an incredible €120 million (£105 million) for him.
According to the report, Osimhen has “not ruled out” the prospect of relocating to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but it’s possible that the London rivals Chelsea, who are also searching for a center-forward, would present a challenge to the Lilywhites.
Tottenham would have to almost double their previous transfer record to sign Osimhen. I see no chance of that happening. Spurs tend to shop in the £40m-£60m price range, which is why the likes of Santiago Gimenez or Jonathan David are more realistic targets.
