Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has issued an invitation to PSG to make a bid for Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen.
Despite Osimhen being expected to stay with Napoli for the upcoming season, De Laurentiis has indicated that PSG can secure his services if they offer €200 million.
Speaking about a potential transfer, De Laurentiis stated, “The only club that can afford to take Osimhen away from us is Paris Saint-Germain. So if Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants to put up 200 or so, then we will wait and evaluate.”
However, Osimhen himself has expressed contentment with remaining at Napoli for the time being. He joined Napoli from LOSC Lille in the summer of 2020 and has since established himself as a quality number nine.
He played a vital role in Napoli’s successful campaign last season, which saw them clinch the Serie A title after more than three decades.
Osimhen’s impressive performances throughout the season showcased his prowess in front of goal. He netted 31 times and provided five assists in 39 appearances across all competitions for Luciano Spalletti’s side.
With his current contract running until 2025, Napoli is keen to retain the talented 24-year-old and is playing hardball in negotiations.
