As the club’s most expensive signing in history, Napoli paid €75 million to Lille for Victor Osimhen. This risky investment has proven to be a resounding success for the Partenopei, who clinched the Serie A title 33 years after the era of Diego Armando Maradona.
Propelled by the Nigerian striker, some of the world’s top teams are eager to secure the services of Napoli’s forward, whose contract expires in 2025. However, as reported by Il Mattino, Aurelio de Laurentiis has called a meeting with Roberto Calenda, Osimhen’s representative, to discuss the renewal of the star player.
In this regard, the Napoli president has set the end of the year as the deadline to announce Osimhen’s renewal, with Chelsea reportedly willing to surpass the €120 million mark to acquire him. It remains to be seen whether Napoli can retain their formidable striker.
