Despite Napoli repeatedly stating that their prized asset, Victor Osimhen, is not available for transfer, it appears increasingly likely that the Nigerian international will leave the Italian club next season. Reports suggest that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has made the striker their top priority. PSG has shown interest in Osimhen for some time, but according to Tutto Napoli, the French champions have now made him their number one target following the emergence of potential new manager Julian Nagelsmann, who specifically requested the striker.
Tutto Napoli reveals that relations between PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo Campos, and Osimhen’s representatives are excellent, and the next few weeks may determine the player’s future club. Radio Punto Nuovo’s editorial staff collected the information, stating that PSG has identified Osimhen as their primary target for the upcoming season’s attack. They also highlight the positive relationship between Campos and Osimhen’s entourage, noting that initial discussions have taken place informally in recent months.
While the arrival of Julian Nagelsmann is close to a definitive agreement, some details still need to be finalized. However, sources close to PSG assure that Osimhen was one of Nagelsmann’s early requests during the talks regarding potential signings.
It is worth noting that Osimhen recently played a significant role in Napoli’s Serie A triumph, securing the title for the first time in 33 years. He also became the first African player to win the Capocannoniere, the Serie A Top Scorer Award. Additionally, he ended a 14-year drought by being the first player since Zlatan Ibrahimovic to win both the Scudetto and the Capocannoniere in the same season.
