Osimhen, Napoli have reached agreement – Conte confirms

New Napoli manager, Antonio Conte, claims Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen has made a “pact” with the Serie A club regarding his future.

Conte disclosed this to reporters in his first press conference as the new boss of the club, saying he is aware of Osimhen’s desire to leave.

Recall that Napoli president, Aurelio de Laurentiis ensured that he rejected all offers for the striker last summer and committed him to a new contract in December 2023.

However, according to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, the 25-year-old may still be exiting the club as Conte explained that his situation is different from other players.

The Italian tactician said. “I’m aware of his situation, I know there’s an agreement with the club so it’s a different case compared to others. There’s a pact between Victor and Napoli on his future and I accepted that”.

Napoli are reportedly ready to reduce their asking price for the Super Eagles attacker. Osimhen has a €150m release clause in his contract. But Calciomercato reports that the Partenopei may now be ready to lower their initial valuation to €100m.
