Transfer Talks: Napoli open to selling Osimhen for lucrative offer

Napoli’s President, Aurelio de Laurentiis, has recently disclosed the club’s willingness to part ways with Victor Osimhen for a significant sum. Despite Osimhen extending his contract with Napoli in December, featuring a release clause believed to be around €100 million, the Nigerian striker has garnered attention from elite clubs across Europe.

Since his arrival at Napoli, Osimhen has showcased his prowess on the pitch, becoming a pivotal figure in the Serie A champions’ squad. However, his impressive performances have not gone unnoticed, with several top clubs closely monitoring his situation.

Speaking with Sky Sports, Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis reveals the club willingness to sell the star striker

“Victor is another good player that Napoli have, we had (Edinson) Cavani, (Gonzalo) Higuain, (Ezequiel) Lavezzi and we had (Dries) Mertens, we had a lot of people who were fantastic.”

“Osimhen is a very great player, and Napoli is a fantastic place… but some players will always be attracted by [the likes of] Real Madrid, PSG, Arsenal, Manchester City or Chelsea. So you can’t always stop them leaving, especially when they have a fixed amount of money where they can be bought. Osimhen has a release clause. It’s a very big amount of money.”

De Laurentiis also asserted that Napoli is in a solid financial spot and does not necessarily need to sell their star.

“The money is the last problem for Napoli,” continued the club’s president. “We always made very good acquisitions as we did in the past. We will do [so] in the future.

“The problem is just sentimental problems. When you see a player leave, it’s like a son. You are also happy if this son has a fantastic success everywhere else.”

Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG are also in the mix for Osimhen.
