Transfer: Oliver Kahn names strikers blocking Bayern Munich from signing Osimhen

Bayern Munich chief executive, Oliver Kahn has named some players stopping the German champion from signing Victor Osimhen from Napoli.

There have been rumours linking the Super Eagles forward to the German Bundesliga champions.

But Kahn said the Bundesliga side is not looking at signing another centre-forward in the summer transfer window, having the likes of 21-year-old Joshua Zirkzee and Jean-Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting as options to replace Robert Lewandowski who is now with Barcelona.

Bayern Munich has also reportedly shown interest in Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentiis will only sell the Nigeria international for 100 million euros.

Speaking after the German Super Cup final between Bayern and RB Leipzig, Kahn told Bild via Il Napolista, “We will not buy other strikers, this is not discussed.

“We have seen how many opportunities we have had in attack and how many different formations we have been able to field.

“We also still have several options in the current team, there is Zirkzee, there is Choupo-Moting, then the young Mathys Tel, who is training incredibly well at the moment.”
