Super Eagles’ star striker Victor Osimhen has been linked with a possible move away from Italy after his impressive performance that helped Napoli clinch the Serie A title this season, but Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis has stated that Osimhen will not be sold this summer. Despite reports claiming that Napoli are willing to sell Osimhen for €150 million, De Laurentiis is adamant that the Nigerian striker will remain at Napoli for the foreseeable future.

In an interview with Rai Sport show ‘Cinque Minuti’, De Laurentiis was asked if Osimhen will move on this summer and he responded with a resounding “I will not sell Victor Osimhen this summer – no way!” This puts an end to the speculations surrounding Osimhen’s future at Napoli.

De Laurentiis also confirmed that the club is waiting on coach Luciano Spalletti to agree to a contract extension. He spoke highly of Spalletti, describing him as a great leader and a legend he has been chasing for at least ten years. He expressed his desire to open a new cycle with Spalletti and hopes that he will agree to the contract extension. “Luciano declared that he fell in love [with Naples], here he has become a hero and it is right that he enjoys it,” De Laurentiis added.

Despite interest from Manchester United, it has been reported that Osimhen would rather join Bayern Munich. However, with De Laurentiis insisting that the striker is not for sale, any potential transfer for Osimhen may have to wait until a later date.

In summary, Napoli’s president has made it clear that Victor Osimhen will not be leaving the club this summer, and the club is looking to extend the contract of their coach Luciano Spalletti. With these statements, Napoli fans can rest easy knowing that their star striker will continue to lead the line for the team.
