Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing the Napoli stars Victor Osimhen and Kim Min-jae at the end of the season.

A report from Football Insider claims that Manchester United are plotting a double raid on Serie A club Napoli, which could cost them around £143 million at the end of the season. And Victor Osimhen and Kim Min-jae are on their agenda.

Victor Osimhen has established himself as one of the best strikers in the world, and he has 23 goals across all competitions this season. The Nigerian international has guided Napoli to the top of the Serie A table and to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions league.

Manchester United are in desperate need of a quality striker like him. They have been overly dependent on Marcus Rashford this season, and the England international has had to lead the line for them. Rashford is more suited to the role of a left-sided winger. And the arrival of Osimhen will allow the Englishman to play in his natural role next season.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils need to add more depth to their defence as well, and Kim Min-jae has emerged as a viable target The 26-year-old South Korean international has a release clause in his contract of around £43 million, which can be activated over a period of two weeks in July.

It looks like Manchester United are prepared to pay up for the two players in the coming months. Osimhen is likely to cost in the region of £100 million. Kim could prove to be a bargain because of the release clause.

Napoli will not want to get rid of two key players in one window, and the Serie A giants will understandably demand a premium if Manchester United come calling. It remains to be seen whether the two clubs can come to an agreement now.

Osimhen has previously revealed that it is his dream to play in the Premier League. And the player could have his head turned by the interest from Manchester United. The 24-year-old has proven himself in Italy and will be hoping to test himself at a higher level now.

The opportunity to showcase his qualities in the Premier League could be a tempting proposition for the young striker. Manchester United will be hoping to challenge for the major trophies next year. So they must look to bring in a few quality players in order to bridge the gap with clubs like Manchester City and Arsenal.
