Napoli slap huge price on Victor Osimhen amid transfer speculation

Napoli have reportedly put a massive price tag on Victor Osimhen following interest from both Man United and Chelsea.

That’s according to a recent report from Italian outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport, who claim Napoli are desperate for their Nigerian hitman to extend his contract, but should a summer move be on the cards, the Italian club are determined to bank a major fee.

Having experienced a hugely impressive season that has seen him score 26 goals in just 31 appearances, in all competitions, Osimhen is understandably attracting the interest of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

With both United and Chelsea’s striking problems well documented, it comes as no surprise that both sides have the 24-year-old on their summer shortlists.

However, should either club back their admiration up in the form of an official offer, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis will reportedly demand a whopping £132m (€150m) in exchange for the prolific number nine.

Osimhen currently has two years left on his deal so failure to extend his stay at the Diego Maradona Stadium could mean this summer is Napoli’s best chance of securing a decent transfer fee.
