Real Madrid Revealed Replacement For Karim Benzema
Real Madrid Revealed: According to rumours, Real Madrid has entered the market for Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. The Napoli player is desired by Los Blancos as a substitute for Frenchman Karim Benzema.
The club is seeking for a replacement for Benzema, 35, who has been a crucial player at the Santiago Bernabeu for years as he enters the final years of his career.
Even though the Napoli president has made it clear that he won’t sell the Nigerian, Osimhen has excelled this season in all competitions, and many clubs will be vying for his signing this summer.
With 23 goals, Osimhen now holds the Serie A scoring lead. With three games remaining in the season, the Nigerian has also helped Napoli win the Scudetto.
Many clubs in Europe are interested in adding the Nigerian to their rosters because of his pace, power, and goal sense, to name a few qualities.
Osimhen’s transfer situation is being closely watched by Real Madrid officials, according to reports on Complete Sports and Daily Post.
The Spanish season has four games left before it is over. Real Madrid is in second place on the leaderboard, and Benzema has scored 17 League goals.
Barcelona defeated Espanyol 4-2 on Sunday, May 14, to win the La Liga championship.
Prior to this, Sports Brief documented how Italian striker Mario Balotelli praised Nigerian player Victor Osimhen after the latter and Napoli won the Serie A.
With 23 goals, the Super Eagles forward has been instrumental in Napoli’s league victory, helping the Gli Azzuri win their first Scudetto in 33 years.
Osimhen will be aiming to end the season as the top scorer now that the league is over.
It would take years for Italy forward Mario Balotelli’s triumph with Napoli to truly sink in, he told Osimhen.
