Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen, might be deemed surplus to requirement if Napoli listens to what Giacomo Tedesco says.
The former Napoli midfielder has advised that Victor Osimhen be sold in the summer if the club needs to get funds to run the club adequately.
Since his mega money move to Naples, the lanky forward has scored six goals and assisted two in 24 appearances in all competitions for the Napolitans.
Osimhen had a patchy start to life in Italy with him bagging three goals in the first 15 matches but has now scored five in his last eight.
Gianluca Di Marzio who’s a transfer market guru also criticized Napoli for paying too muc for the former Wolfsburg youngster.
The Italian giants coughed out a whopping 70 million euros (if performance-related add-ons are not included) to bring Osimehn to the Maradona stadium.
Tedesco in a chat with ‘Il Sogno Nel Cuore’, broadcast on 1 Station Radio (via Calcio Napoli) was asked to pick a player that who should leave the Naples based club if there’s a downsizing and he said:
“Osimhen. He is a promising player and could possibly bring cash into the coffers.
“I am convinced that Gattuso’s team will reach the Europe that matters, the matches are difficult for everyone and the Azzurri are there.”
The former Lille marksman has a contract with Napoli up until 2025.
