Osimhen Happy At Napoli, Wants Long Term Contract
Victor Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calendar says his client is happy at the club amid persistent rumors linking him with a move elsewhere.
Osimhen linked up with the Partenopei from Ligue 1 outfit, Lille in 2022 and has established himself as a key player for the club.
The 23-year-old finished as Napoli’s top scorer in his first two seasons at the club.
The forward was linked with a move to Premier League giants, Manchester United this summer.
“We haven’t found out now that Osimhen is the subject of interest from so many teams, but things are done in three: who sells, who buys and the player,” Calenda told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.
“I was immediately clear this summer because I knew there would be a lot of news coming out from those who had other interests perhaps. But I, the boy and Napoli had very clear ideas.”
There will be more interest in Osimhen next summer as the Nigerian international is currently one of the best strikers in the game.
Calenda however stated that his client wants a longer stay in Naples.
“Whoever talked about a departure made a mistake. It was Victor’s will to stay at Napoli and play the Champions League that he won entry to last year together with his teammates,”he added.
“Victor wanted exactly that, to have a great year with Napoli, between the league and the Champions League. He has a long contract with the Azzurri. The market is dynamic, but our will is to continue at Napoli and continue to do well.”
Osimhen has scored four goals and recorded one assist in eight appearances across all competitions for Napoli this season.
