Osimhen Reportedly Inching Closer to Napoli Permanence

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is driving an extremely hard bargain on Victor Osimhen. No suitors have come close to the asking price. The odds of the striker staying put are rapidly increasing, Tuttomercatoweb reports.

The Azzurri want no less than €150M to sell the capocannoniere. Extending his contract, which runs out in 2025, would nip the matter in the bud for this summer. There’s no agreement at this stage, but the rapport with his agent is sound, and the talks are progressing. The player and his camp are open to an extension.

Reports from France suggest that PSG have been scared away by the Napoli demands for Osimhen. They are keener on Randal Kolo Muani, who’s less expensive. Bayern Munich and the Premier League powerhouses have yet to materialize.

The Partenopei plot to hand the forward wealthier wages, although they can’t match what he’d get elsewhere. The parties are bargaining over the amount of a possible release sum, which would facilitate his exit in 2024.

Our Take on Napoli and Osimhen

His future ultimately hinges on two persons, the star and the president, and neither is currently pushing for a breakup. His price tag might be too high even for today’s crazy standards. A new contract with a nine-digit exit clause could satisfy everybody.
