Football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano provides a crucial update on Osimhen’s future with the Serie A club, as Soccernet.ng reports.
Romano suggests that the Nigerian international is unlikely to commit to a new contract with Napoli despite the club’s efforts. Osimhen’s standout performances have attracted attention from prominent European clubs, particularly two London-based giants, Chelsea and Arsenal.
The ongoing Napoli-TikTok saga and the prolonged contract negotiations have added uncertainty to Osimhen’s future with the Gli Azzurri. With his current deal set to expire in June 2025, Napoli faces the risk of losing the talented forward either in the upcoming January transfer window or next summer.
Speaking on the Kick streaming platform, Romano clarified the current situation, stating, “For Victor Osimhen, it’s essential to clarify, as I’ve consistently mentioned since September, there’s no agreement between Napoli and Osimhen for a new contract. He’s only contracted until June 2025, and my sources are quite clear – Osimhen isn’t inclined to sign a new deal at Napoli. That’s the current status as of today.”
Romano emphasized the unpredictability of football but affirmed that, as of now, Osimhen seems firm in his decision not to renew his contract with Napoli.
Despite the contract uncertainties, Osimhen recently made a notable comeback to Napoli’s squad after recovering from an injury sustained during Nigeria’s match against Saudi Arabia. His return has undoubtedly fueled speculation among clubs vying for his signature, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the evolving transfer saga.
As the football world watches closely, the coming months promise to be pivotal for Victor Osimhen, Napoli, and the potential suitors eyeing the coveted striker.
