Following speculation regarding the Nigerian marksman departing Napoli, Victor Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda opened up about his client’s future within Naples.
Since the end of last season, there were numerous European giants that expressed interest in acquiring Osimhen following an impressive campaign of 14 goals and two assists in 27 matches played within the top-flight Italian league.
So far this season, the 23 year-old striker has maintained where he left off as he scored three goals and provided one assist in six appearances for Spalletti’s squad within the Serie A.
In an interview with Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, via Tuttomercatoweb, Calenda opened up about transfer rumours and Osimhen’s future with I Partenopei, emphasizing on his happiness at his current club:
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.
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.
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.
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.”
