Unsure how to create a poll,however thought it was worth setting up new thread to see which of these two people think we should sign this summer.
Yeah he looks a longer term signing,much as I think Kane looks great in Utd shirt I am intrigued to see what Erik could do with Osimhen. Would say even with rich owners the valuation of player will be important tooTbf I don't think we could complain if we landed either.
Even just in terms of squad profile though, I'd prefer Osimhen. Kane will be 30 at the start of next season, which in itself isn't an issue. But in addition to that Casemiro, Varane, Eriksen and De Gea will all be between 30-32 and Bruno will be just turning 29. That's a lot of key players hitting their 30s at around the same time, in addition to squad options like Fred, Maguire and Lindelof who are around the same age.
Osimhen at still just 24 years old would be a more attractive long-term option from that POV.
Agree with this. Kane is definitely slowing already. He’s not one for a pressing side, and would probably be way over priced. Like the look of Osimhen.Osimhen for me. Kane's became visibly slower already and I don't trust his ankles one bit even though on paper he's only 29. And while he compensates for it with his brilliant playmaking, he's also not much of a use in a high-pressing system and I don't really want for ten Hag to compromise his system for a star player's convenience.
Osimhen, on the other hand, is younger, works quite hard off the ball, is rapidly quick, very strong and fantastic in the air. The only thing that Kane really has over him, experience aside, is his playmaking - but Osimhen is actually quite decent in the build up himself.
This.Kane obviously. He’s probably the most complete number 9 in the world and has had 9 seasons in a row where he has scored more league goals than Osimhen’s current best season in his career of 14, despite playing in a far tougher league and for a relatively weaker team.
If we lose out on Kane for some reason though, I’d happily go for Osimhen. There’s a lot more risk when he’s currently having his first genuinely top class season and he will be over-priced but he’s definitely got a lot of qualities that will work for us.
We’ve been saying this for years with a succession of stop gap strikers. Isn’t it about time we just got that “next big striker”?Go for Kane then replace him with the next big striker.
Osimhen is good but I don’t see him being within the next top 10 strikers of the next 10 years.
There will be a better version of Osimhen coming up in the next 3 years.
Seems like we are going for the next big striker when the list is extremely low. Osimhen seems like the only player above average.We’ve been saying this for years with a succession of stop gap strikers. Isn’t it about time we just got that “next big striker”?
Fair enough it's natural to have doubts about either but itself such a hard position to find decent players in and no one else comes to mind really.I don’t know, I just don’t see it with Osimhen and Kane’s biscuit ankles at 30 is a massive red flag at the money it would take to get him.
Who? City got Haaland, PSG has Mbappe, Liverpool got Núñez. Moukoko has potential, Kvaratskhelia has potential and Adeyemi has potential, but none of them are ready.We’ve been saying this for years with a succession of stop gap strikers. Isn’t it about time we just got that “next big striker”?
Thats exactly where I am. Kane is obviously better, more reliable, more experienced, more rounded. He is much less of a risky buy. Its Osimhen's injury record that is more concerning actually.Osimhen makes the long term sense… but Kane is clearly the better player. Get Kane even if it’s for 3 years, they’ll be another Victor Osimhen in that time, believe me.
