Osimhen starts Napoli pre-season, awaits offers

Published:

Victor Osimhen has started the pre-season with Napoli, but the Nigeria international keeps waiting for offers to leave the Stadio Maradona.

Osimhen arrived at Castel Volturno this morning to undergo medical examinations with Napoli and start the pre-season under Antonio Conte.

Osimhen is not expected to remain at the Stadio Maradona beyond the summer, but he hasn’t yet received formal offers to leave the club.

His contract includes a €130m clause, and despite links with Chelsea and PSG, the Partenopei have not yet heard from potential suitors, so their star striker will start preparing for the new campaign with the rest of the team.

La Repubblica reports that Osimhen was among the first players to arrive at Napoli’s training centre on Tuesday morning.

The group included Leonardo Spinazzola and Rafa Marin, who had had medical tests on Monday, while Alessandro Buongiorno will undergo examinations on Wednesday. Antonio Conte is prepared to part company with Osimhen, as the coach explained in his first press conference. Romelu Lukaku has emerged as the primary option to replace the Nigerian striker.
