Osimhen also admitted to being tempted by a huge offer to move to Saudi Arabia in the summer, though it’s clear he remains ambitious and focused on winning things in Europe as he turned them down a few times.

He told John Obi Mikel’s podcast: “I don’t have a favourite PL team but I have two jerseys: Chelsea and Man United. Many friends of mine are Chelsea fans, few are Man Utd fans.”
On the Saudi interest, he added: “I never thought of [leaving in summer] at first. But when this huge offer came from a Saudi club it was tempting. It was a big one… I had three meetings and made up my mind to stick with the team.
“In August it was a huge decision for me to take. The more I said no to these people the more they increased their offer. It was literally like ‘wow’… they never gave up until the end of their transfer window.”
