De Laurentiis Speaks on Osimhen, Veiga Gets Closer

Even though coming to terms on a new contract has proven challenging, Aurelio De Laurentiis is sure Victor Osimhen isn’t leaving this summer. The president made the announcement to Sky.

“He will stay. He has two more years on his deal. Where should he go? Contracts exist and should always be respected by both parties. There’s a bilateral relationship with him, which means that we get along. That has been the case since day one. Therefore, you can stay serene.”

According to the publication, the parties have never been closer to coming to terms. Other than tending to the negotiation with Osimhen, Napoli keep pursuing Gabri Veiga, whom they have zeroed in on to succeed Piotr Zielinski in the midfield. They won’t stop at David Cajuste should the Pole leave. They confirmed the arrival of Swede from Reims earlier today.

According to SportMediaset, they reached an agreement in principle with the youngster on a five-year contract with €2M wages. However, he’s unlikely to come out in the open out of respect for his own club, where he has spent the entirety of his career.

Celta Vigo insist Napoli should trigger a €40M release clause to sign Veiga. The Azzurri will try to pay slightly less. They plot to raise their bid to €35/36M including add-ons. They could insert a resale clause and a makeweight among their outcasts.
