Former Napoli and current Arsenal midfielder, Jorginho has revealed he was consulted by the Napoli hierarchy before Osimhen was signed.

The Italian midfielder said Napoli Sporting Director, Cristiano Giuntoli discussed with him on the phone before signing Osimhen.

“I knew Osimhen. I had played against him in the Champions League and he had given a hard time to our defenders.

“Giuntoli called me before signing him and I told him to sign him straightaway, he is very promising and is doing really well. There is winning energy,” Jorginho told DAZN.

Osimhen signed for Napoli from LOSC Lille in 2020 for €75 million and he is the current top scorer in the Seria A, scoring an incredible 18 goals in 19 appearances.
