Napoli, who won the Italian Football League title for the first time since 1990, are ready to sign Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen to a new contract, with no club willing to meet the southern club’s asking price, according to local reports.
The “Futbol-Italia” website, specialized in Italian football news, reported that a few days ago, the southern club had its second meeting with the players’ agent, Roberto Calenda, and that the two sides are close to reaching an agreement. The 24-year-old’s salary will be improved and the new contract will include a penalty clause.
However, according to the site, both sides are in no rush to resolve the issue as they believe the player will not leave until 2025 with the club he was originally linked to this summer.
Napoli owes a lot to the Nigerian scorer after he was instrumental in guiding them to their first title in the Italian league since 1990, scoring 26 goals in 32 matches played in “Serie A” last season.
No club interested in the services of the player, who has been defending Napoli’s colors since 2020, seems willing to pay the 120 million euros the southern club is demanding.
French sports newspaper “L’Equipe” revealed on Monday that compatriot Paris Saint-Germain have abandoned their bid to sign Osimhen this summer and will now focus on signing his compatriot Randall Colo Mwani from Eintracht. Frankfurt.
And in light of his inability to pay the sixty million euros demanded by Italian Atalanta to drop their young Danish striker Rasmus Holland (20 years old), Manchester United are unlikely to achieve their desire to include Osimhan and pay the requested amount. By Napoli.
