If Bayern have been to one way or the other signal Osimhen, he can be by far their costliest striker ever on the very least, surpassing the measly €30 million they paid for Mario Gomez in 2009.

Osimhen however has newly attained that elite standing and the 24-year-old would slot in like a glove in Bavaria over the following decade similar to Lewandoski did.

The Polish gunman scored 344 objectives in 375 video games throughout eight years for Bayern Munich, the kind of high-level manufacturing and consistency Osimhen might replicate with age on his aspect.
