I think you can use what's called an "Alias Library":
https://cmake.org/cmake/help/latest/command/add_library.html#alias-libraries

if (BUILD_SHARED_LIBS)
     add_library(my_libprimesieve ALIAS libprimesieve)
else
     add_library(my_libprimesieve ALIAS libprimesieve-static)
endif(BUILD_SHARED_LIBS)

Then, set it properly to Primesieve::Primesieve and it should work.
