Rio Ferdinand urges Manchester United to sign Victor Osimhen or Harry Kane

Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand has urged the Red Devils to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen next summer.


has scored 19 goals in 21 matches in Serie A this season, and big European clubs are monitoring his situation ahead of the summer transfer window.

Reports suggest that the 24-year-old striker is on

Manchester United

and Chelsea's radar. Osimhen recently said he is focused on Napoli, but also admitted that he likes to play in the Premier League.

Manchester United reportedly wants to sign a striker this summer, and they have chosen Osimhen and

Harry Kane

as their top targets.

Man United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Victor Osimhen is in better form than any other striker in Europe, and urged his former team to either sign him or Tottenham star Harry Kane.

“I think United are looking to sign a striker, there’s no secrets around it,”

he quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“Wout Weghorst was maybe a short-term option, although I think he has offered a lot and is doing everything that the manager would have wanted.

“There are two options that jump out at you. I think Victor Osimhen, in terms of form and being that out-and-out number nine striker, is arguably in better form than anyone in the world at the moment.”

He added:

“Harry Kane is also someone people are talking about – there may be contract negotiations with Tottenham coming up, or perhaps he’d be looking to move.

“If that were to be the case, then I wouldn’t be disappointed with either. I think signing a number nine who can score 20-25 goals a season is something that the club are looking to do.”

After a humiliating 7-0 defeat against Liverpool, Ten Hag's side will face Real Betis in the Europe League on Thursday.
