Napoli will meet Victor Osimhen’s agent to discuss a new contract, but Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly ready to make an offer worth €150m (about N133,935,598,125.00 billion) for the Nigerian striker.
The center-forward was already signed from LOSC for over €70m and has gone from strength to strength at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
President Aurelio De Laurentiis has given mixed messages, assuring Osimhen reached a verbal agreement to extend his contract to June 2027, but at the same time warning if an offer they can’t refuse comes in, then it must be considered.

According to Sportitalia transfer pundit Alfredo Pedulla, that bid could well come in from Paris Saint-Germain, and including performance-related bonuses it would hit the magic €150m figure.
This would blow even Premier League competition out of the water, with Manchester United and Chelsea seemingly not too sure about going beyond €100m.
Considering the Nigeria international is only 24 years old and was Capocannoniere this season with 26 goals in 32 Serie A appearances, plus five in six Champions League matches, that simply would not be enough to make Napoli wobble.
Regardless, first Napoli will meet with Osimhen’s agent to discuss the situation.
Should the striker be sold, they have already identified Jonathan David of LOSC as his replacement.
