Napoli president confirms Victor Osimhen will sign a new deal

Napoli’s report that Victor Osimhen was about to pledge his future to them suggests that Chelsea are going to suffer a significant transfer setback.

Last season, the 24-year-old Nigerian striker made history by leading the Italian team to their first Serie A championship in thirty-three years.

Osimhen has been on a scorching run this season, having scored 26 goals in 32 games in the top division.

Because of this, he was linked to some of the top European teams during the transfer season, with Manchester United and Chelsea vying for his services.

De Laurentiis said: “For Osimhen, we are at signing of the contract that was pending this summer.”

Despite this, he has maintained his composure and added six more goals to his Napoli total this season despite several issues.

Following a contentious TikTok post in September that had the player considering suing his employers, the Premier League pair, along with rivals Arsenal, were placed on high alert.

Owner of Chelsea, Todd Boehly, is now desperate to bolster his front line and has set Osimhen as his main January goal.

However, it appears that he will be disappointed after learning that Napoli and their lucky charm are nearing a deal to extend their contract, as disclosed by CEO Aurelio de Laurentiis.

He revealed the information this week while presenting the Campania Felix award, despite earlier attempts at dialogue failing.

According to earlier rumours, Napoli is expected to incorporate a sizable release provision in the agreement. The present agreement with Osimhen expires in June 2025. Nine points below leaders Juventus, Napoli is now having trouble defending their championship.

However, they will aim to attempt and close that difference when they play Inter Milan, who are in second position, at home on Sunday.
