Brilliant for his first season in Ligue 1, with 13 goals to his credit in 27 appearances, Victor Osimhen would particularly interest Napoli. But according to those around him, no club has yet concluded an agreement with the Lille striker.
Author of 13 goals and four assists for his first season in Ligue 1, Victor Osimhen should not go on forever Lille. A year after having bought it in Charleroi for 12 million euros, northern leaders can expect to make a very big capital gain if sold this summer.
In recent weeks, rumors have notably mentioned Napoli’s interest in the 21-year-old Nigerian striker. But according to those around him, the player has not yet made any decision for his future.
“Neither with Napoli nor with other clubs”
“An agreement with Napoli? There has been a lot of speculation in the media. Someone has already said that there was an agreement but it is not true. There have been meetings and videoconferences, but Osimhen has not yet concluded any agreement. Neither with Napoli nor with other clubs, “reacted his brother-in-law Osita Okolo in an interview with Radio Marte, reported by the Tuttomercato site.
“Naples is a fantastic city with incredible fans. It is a very strong team, a great club and I am very happy that Victor is approached by Napoli. But there is still no agreement. The important thing is that he can play and have fun, “he insisted.
Several offers on Gérard Lopez’s desk
Without revealing the names of the clubs interested, president Gérard Lopez confirmed to him at the beginning of the month that he had already received offers for his striker. “What I can tell you is that there are several. There are three championships of which clubs have submitted offers. Last year people did not believe that we had such high offers for Nicolas Grandpa and it turns out that we had several. Let me tell you that with Osimhen, it’s the same thing, “he said to from the Daily Mail.
As a reminder, Nicolas Pépé flew last summer for Arsenal against a check for 80 million euros. Lille had bought 10 million two years earlier in Angers.
