According to the Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen could form a deadly partnership with in-form Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford.

The pairing of the two most in-form strikers in Europe’s top leagues could transform Manchester United’s attack into the most feared and dangerous in the Premier League and Europe.

Ighalo, 33, has no doubts Victor Osimhen could fit into Manchester United’s high-press system and has given the nod for the Napoli forward to join the Premier League side.

Victor Osimhen is a revelation in Napoli’s attack this season. His prolific goal-scoring streak has propelled Napoli to the top of Serie A this season, with an astonishing 15-point gap.

Osimhen recorded an astonishing goal-scoring streak, banging in goals in 8 consecutive matches for Napoli.

The 24-year-old now has a total of 43 Serie A goals and is 3 goals away from matching George Weah’s Serie A record as the African player with the highest number of goals in the Italian topflight.

Victor Osimhen’s outstanding and prolific season with Napoli has made him a transfer target for Premier League clubs.

Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal are reportedly mapping out their summer transfer plans around the Nigeria international.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to splash over £100m for Osimhen but will have to wrestle with arch-domestic rivals Chelsea and Arsenal, who are also indicating strong interest in the Napoli forward.

The Al-Hilal forward and compatriot, who played on loan with Manchester United, argued that Old Trafford will be Osimhen’s best destination.

Speaking on Sky Sport, Ighalo said, “Victor Osimhen is a good fit for United because he is a young boy and his pairing with Rashford (two fast players and prolific scorers) could change the narrative in the United attack.”

Ighalo added he will advise Osimhen to join the Old Trafford club because it is the biggest club.

“I think he will fit in well with Manchester United. If he asked for my opinion and what he should do, I would advise him to join Man United because, for me, they are the biggest club.”

This season, Osimhen has scored 21 goals in 26 appearances for Napoli and is currently an unrivaled candidate for the Serie A golden boot.

He recently won 2022 Italy Best Foreign Athlete due to his outstanding form for Napoli this season.
