Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has reiterated that the club may still sell Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen before the expiration of his contract in 2025.
Recall that the Nigerian international’s future in Italy is in doubt, after the club’s official TikTok account mocked him for missing a penalty against Bologna.
However, in a chat with Football Italia, De Laurentiis stated that despite their verbal agreement with Osimhen, the club could still sell him just the way they sold Koulibaly to Chelsea one year before end of his deal.
“We verbally agreed on new deal in August, then if things change on his side… life goes on. Victor’s contract expires in June 2025, there’s always time. Remember, I sold Koulibaly to Chelsea one year before end of his deal.”
Osimhen, 24, fired Napoli to Serie A glory last season but his relationship with the Italian champions has soured in recent months.
The Super Eagles star has still fired six league goals this season, maintaining his reputation as one of the best strikers in Europe.
Osimhen is a Christian. He has stated that he has drawn inspiration from Sadio Mané, who helps his community in Senegal, and has said he wants to help disabled people throughout Africa. Osimhen announced the birth of his first child, a daughter named Haly, born October 2022.
