Bayern Munich’s honorary president, Uli Hoeness, praised Victor Osimhen but clarified that the club will not spend €180m to acquire the striker.
Osimhen had an impressive season with Napoli in Serie A last year, scoring 26 goals and becoming the leading scorer in the Italian league.
The 24-year-old also contributed five goals in the UEFA Champions League.
According to reports, Napoli has set a price of €180m for the player.
However, Hoeness stated that Bayern Munich will not exceed the fair value for Osimhen.
“Bayern Munich doesn’t go along with that if the numbers of up to €180m are correct,” he told t-online.de.
“These [Kolo Muani and Osimhen] are both excellent strikers, even if both are 24 years old. Osimhen is a bit further because he has been playing in a top league for a long time. Bayern can plan ahead for a decade with any of them. Osimhen has a bit more experience.”
