Osimhen’s agent meets Napoli amid ongoing talks with Arsenal and Man Utd

According to Il Corriere dello Sport newspaper, Victor Osimhen’s agent met Aurelio De Laurentiis and Cristiano Giuntoli earlier this week to discuss the striker’s possible move to Manchester United or Arsenal.

Osimhen may leave the Stadio Maradona in the summer with Napoli looking for an offer above €100m. That’s as much as Newcastle United offered in January, but the Partenopei decided against selling the Nigeria international in the middle of the season.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport newspaper, Osimhen dreams of moving to the Premier League, where Arsenal and Manchester United are his favourite destinations. His agent Roberto Calenda is in talks with both clubs and has informed De Laurentiis and Giuntoli about the Gunners’ and the Red Devils’ interests.

Il Corriere reports that Manchester United are leading the race to sign Osimhen, but La Gazzetta dello Sport reported last week that the 23-year-old wants to play Champions League football next season.

Napoli have already identified several possible replacements for Osimhen: Gianluca Scamacca and Giacomo Raspadori(Sassuolo), Luis Sinisterra, a versatile winger under contract with Feyenoord who can also play as a centre forward, and Giovanni Simeone (Verona).

    Napoli had for the last decade their best chance to win a scudetto. Esp as Milan and inter imploded in the aftermath of morrati and berlusconi retirements.

    ADL should sell oshimen, koulibaly and Ruiz and take the club to.where it always lives … Serie b by or sell the club on and focus on Bari

  2. DARIO

    Definitely sell Ruiz (too slow) and Osimhen (injury prone and no technical ability). With the money go for Mauro Icardi now his wife has left him.
