Victor Osimhen, the Nigerian striker, could potentially earn €50 million (approximately N43 billion) if he transfers to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG)
Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis believes that only PSG can afford the talented Nigeria international and anticipates a million-dollar offer for the player. Other prominent clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Bayern Munich have withdrawn from negotiations due to De Laurentiis’ high asking price.
Last week, PSG made an offer of €120 million for Osimhen, but Napoli rejected it. However, Napoli values the player at €150 million, a sum no club is currently willing to meet.
De Laurentiis stated that PSG is the only club capable of affording Victor Osimhen, and if PSG’s president Nasser Al Khelaifi bids around €200 million, they will see how the situation unfolds. Nevertheless, De Laurentiis personally believes that Osimhen will remain with Napoli.
Sky Sports reported a potential €300 million deal between PSG and Al-Hilal for Kylian Mbappe, though the player has not yet agreed to play in Saudi Arabia. Should Mbappe leave, Osimhen could be the ideal replacement for the striker.
If Napoli acquires the 24-year-old player, he could receive a salary of €50 million and become the star of the team. However, Osimhen does not seem enthusiastic about a move to Ligue 1.
In the previous season, Osimhen’s outstanding performance, with 26 goals and five assists in 32 league appearances, significantly contributed to Napoli’s Serie A title win after over three decades. Additionally, he became the first African to win the prestigious Capocannoniere award, given to the top scorer in Serie A.
