PSG Currently the Most Motivated Suitors for Osimhen

PSG are ready to lodge an extremely wealthy bid for Victor Osimhen, whose agent Roberto Calenda will soon meet with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis to take stock of the star’s future. He has two years on his contract.

Per Alfredo Pedullà, the French powerhouse could tender €120/125M plus sizeable bonuses, reaching the €150M threshold. The Nigerian marksman would earn €10M+ per year. Director Luis Campos, who previously brought him to Lille, is a big fan.

PSG signaled their plan to go after Osimhen but haven’t taken formal steps yet. They lost Lionel Messi, and the future of Kylian Mbappé and Neymar hangs in the balance, which makes them a considerable threat. They are in the hunt for a prolific center-forward after Marcus Thuram snubbed them.

According to Corriere del Mezzogiorno (via FootballNews24), the Azzurri chairman will attempt to hold on to his ace by offering a new deal and raising his salary to €6M per year. He’s already the highest-paid player in the squad and one of the few exceptions to their strict salary policy.

Our Take on PSG and Osimhen

Keeping him would be a great show of strength for the Scudetto winners. They have to hope he’s not lured by the sirens, as they don’t have a ton of leverage. An extension envisaging a somewhat reasonable release clause could be an apt compromise. However, after the shocking Sandro Tonali deal, Serie A’s copycat nature shouldn’t be underestimated. More teams might look to cash in on their talents not to miss out on the opportunity to be financially set for a few years.
