Napoli director of sport Cristiano Giuntoli insists they want to ‘continue together’ with Hirving Lozano and admits negotiations were ‘tough’ for Victor Osimhen.

The transfer guru spoke at the press conference presenting new signings Osimhen from Lille and Amir Rrahmani from Verona.

“I remember Osimhen in the Under-17 World Cup and he had a great tournament. It was a tough negotiation process because it was done at a distance, so clearly we didn’t get the usual sense of whether this was going to work or not,” said Giuntoli.

“Thankfully, it all went well. It was an expensive investment, but we are convinced he will do very well.”

At €50m plus €10m in bonuses and three youth team players, Osimhen becomes the most expensive ever Napoli signing.

The previous record holder, Chucky Lozano, has struggled to make any real impact in his first Serie A season.

“We believe he can only do better, so the desire is to continue together,” added the director of sport.
