Victor Osimhen likely to remain at Napoli amid transfer rumors

Despite being linked with some of Europe’s top clubs, Victor Osimhen appears set to continue his career at Napoli next season. The Nigerian international, who has been in superb form, was initially expected to be a major target in the summer transfer window, but recent developments suggest otherwise.

Over the past weeks, speculation about Osimhen’s departure has dwindled, with the likelihood of him staying at Napoli growing stronger.

The 25-year-old striker, who netted 17 goals and provided 4 assists in 32 games last season, had attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, and Arsenal.

However, these clubs have reportedly backed off due to Napoli’s hefty asking price of 130 million euros.

While European interest seems to be cooling, Osimhen has garnered attention from Saudi Arabia.

Al Hilal and Al Ahli, two prominent teams in the Saudi Pro League, have expressed keen interest in securing the services of the prolific striker.

Despite their lucrative offers, Osimhen, who has yet to win some of Europe’s most prestigious trophies, remains focused on his career in European football, showing little enthusiasm for a move to the Middle East.

Antonio Conte, the newly appointed coach of Napoli, views Osimhen as a pivotal part of his plans to maintain a high-caliber squad.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Conte is keen to meet with Osimhen to discuss his future and persuade him to remain with the Italian club.

Osimhen’s current contract with Napoli runs until June 30, 2026, giving the club some leverage in retaining their star player.

As the summer transfer window progresses, Osimhen’s situation continues to be a topic of interest.

For now, it appears that Napoli fans can look forward to seeing the Super Eagle don their colors for another season, much to the relief of Antonio Conte and the club’s supporters.
