The proposed transfer of Victor Osimhen from OSC Lille to Napoli could be canceled. Reports in France and Italy are claiming that the Nigerian forward is ready to sign a multi-year deal with the club, but sources close to the player insist that he is not convinced enough to put his signature under the contract at Napoli.
The 21-year-old forward currently is in Italy and has been given a tour through the city of Naples. Le10Sport claim that while Osimhen would like to play for Napoli, he is reluctant to play in a competition where there is stil a major racism problem. This could be a make or break reason for Osimhen, who has also been linked with a move to Newcastle United.
Oma Akatugba from omasports.com has revealed that the player is ‘not too willing’, having talked to Osimhen after his tour of Naples. “He says he’s not too convinced”, Akatugba posted on social media. Earlier reports stated that Napoli would be willing to pay close to €70m for Osimhen.
