Osimhen pushing for Premier League move


According to renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano, Victor Osimhen’s future at Napoli remains a hot topic in the summer transfer market. The Nigerian striker, who has a €120 million release clause in his contract, is reportedly keen on leaving the Italian club this summer.

Romano highlighted that new Napoli manager Antonio Conte’s recent comments have fueled speculation about Osimhen’s departure. While Conte mentioned a veto on selling certain players like Kvaratskhelia, he notably omitted Osimhen from this list. This omission suggests that there is an understanding between the club and the player regarding a potential exit.

The Premier League appears to be Osimhen’s preferred destination. Romano stated, “The Premier League remains Osimhen’s dream. He would like an opportunity in this league and is waiting to see what happens.” This desire aligns with the growing interest from top English clubs in securing a world-class striker.

Despite the high release clause, there’s a sense that Napoli is open to negotiating Osimhen’s departure. “The feeling remains the same: a way will be sought for Osimhen to leave Napoli,” Romano explained. This situation positions Osimhen as one of the most intriguing names to watch in the coming weeks, especially for clubs in search of a top-tier forward.
