In a move that reinforces their commitment to their star striker, Napoli, the reigning Serie A champions, unveiled a significant announcement on Saturday regarding Nigerian international forward Victor Osimhen. The club via their social media platforms have officially confirmed that Osimhen has inked a contract extension, binding him to Napoli until 2026.
The announcement was made through Napoli’s various social media platforms, providing fans with an exciting visual representation of the momentous occasion. A picture capturing Osimhen putting pen to paper on the new deal, alongside club owner Aurelio De Laurentiis, was shared with the caption, “Victor and Napoli together until 2026.”
This proclamation not only celebrates the Nigerian forward’s continued association with the club but also solidifies Napoli’s commitment to retaining a player who has become a linchpin in their attacking lineup.
Osimhen’s prowess in front of goal has been instrumental in Napoli’s recent successes, and this contract extension marks a strategic move by the club to secure his services for the foreseeable future.
The announcement is sure to be welcomed by Napoli supporters, who can now look forward to witnessing Osimhen’s continued contributions on the pitch as the club strives for further triumphs in domestic and international competitions.
Earlier, it was reported that several top clubs are eyeing the Nigerian superstar, who is reportedly the highest-paid African player in the world. There is a clause in the new agreement between him and the club that allows him to be released to non-Italian clubs no earlier than summer 2024 for a fee of €120 million. According to Transfermarkt, his estimated market value is now €110 million. It seems that the new deal will guarantee Napoli the striker’s services only until next summer.
