Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal are reportedly set to make a huge bid for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen after being turned down by PSG forward Kylian Mbappe.
The most recent report comes from French publication L’Équipe, who are reporting that Saudi side Al Hilal are set to launch an audacious bid to snap up Osimhen from Napoli.
PSG who are currently in a standoff with star forward Kylian Mbappe over a summer exit have also had Osimhen on their radar this summer but are yet to submit a formal offer to Napoli.
In recent days they have turned their attention to Manchester United target and Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund, with the Napoli key man perhaps proving too expensive.

He would not be too expensive for Al Hilal though, with the Saudi outfit proving money is no obstacle after making a €300m offer for Mbappe, which was immediately accepted by PSG — only for the France captain to turn down the move.
Osimhen could cost more than €150m and it remains to be seen if a move to the Middle East this summer is on the cards for the Nigeria international.
Meanwhile, Osimhen was spotted in Paris, which swells rumours of a move to PSG, even though it is believed the trip is not transfer related.
