Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has taken to Instagram to send a message to fans amidst speculation linking the striker with a potential move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Osimhen has been impressive since joining Napoli from Lille in the summer of 2020, having found the back of the net on 15 occasions in all competitions so far this campaign (Transfermarkt).

Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli (18/03/22 as relayed by TuttoNapoli) claimed recently that Tottenham are interested in a move for the Nigerian international ahead of the summer transfer window.

The report claimed that the North London club had identified the Napoli star as a potential replacement for Harry Kane should the England captain depart this summer.

It was suggested that the Lilywhites were facing competition from Newcastle United for the 23-year-old’s signature.

However, Osimhen has now taken to social media to seemingly distance himself from any transfer talk, insisting that he fully focussed on doing well for Napoli.

The striker wrote on his Instagram: “Focus On My Passion. The Rest Are Just Background Noise.”

This might just be a generic post that has nothing to do with Osimhen’s future at Napoli. While the 23-year-old is certainly a top talent, I do not see him as being a realistic target for Spurs unless Kane leaves, as he would not want to play second fiddle to the 28-year-old.
