Reported across Europe, notably linked to PSG as a potential replacement for Kylian Mbappé, Napoli‘s striker Victor Osimhen seems close to determining his future.
PSG Transfer Market: Luis Campos Doesn’t Give Up on Victor Osimhen.
With a year and a half left on his contract with SSC Naples, Victor Osimhen could be one of the major highlights of the upcoming transfer markets in 2024. As Kylian Mbappé might leave for free at the end of the current season, Paris Saint-Germain‘s leaders have marked the 24-year-old striker as one of the potential successors to the captain of the French team in red and blue. After bringing him to Lille in 2019, Luis Campos would like to convince his former protected to join him at PSG and be part of Luis Enrique‘s team. The football advisor of the French capital club is reportedly already in contact with the player’s entourage to try to persuade him, but the deal seems very complicated as there is fierce competition in this matter.
Aurelio de Laurentiis on Victor Osimhen: “We are close to an agreement.”
Taking advantage of an interview with Corriere dello Sport this Friday, Aurelio De Laurentiis provided an update on Victor Osimhen’s situation. While rumors are multiplying concerning the future of the 2023 African Golden Ball winner, the Nigerian international is approaching an extension according to his president Aurelio De Laurentiis. “Osimhen? I say it and repeat it: we are about to reach an agreement,” declared the Italian leader. According to sources close to this matter, the upcoming contract would include a release clause set at 130 million euros for the Lagos native. An amount that does not pose a serious obstacle for the club of President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. However, caution is needed regarding Chelsea and Manchester United on this prestigious track.
