Osimhen

Nobody is willing to pay Napoli’s €110 million asking price for Victor Osimhen, and the club has denied asking Kalidou Koulibaly to cut his wages in half.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Partenopei would be willing to sell Nigerian international hitman Osimhen this summer, but only for €110 million.

Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Newcastle United have all expressed interest, but none of the Premier League clubs are willing to match those numbers.

When you consider that Napoli paid almost €70 million to purchase the 23-year-old from Lille in 2020, and he scored 18 goals and added six assists in 32 competitive appearances this season, the price is significantly below the market average.

Meanwhile, Napoli issued a statement this afternoon denying allegations in the Corriere dello Sport that they had offered Koulibaly a contract extension for half of his current annual wage of €6 million.

If such was the offer on the table, it would virtually force the Senegalese international centre-back to leave.
