Paris Saint-Germain football advisor Luis Campos is reportedly set to meet with the agents of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen during the international break.

The 24-year-old has quickly become one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe, having spearheaded the Partenopei’s charge towards an expected Serie A crown.

Osimhen has posted 25 goals and five assists from 29 matches in all tournaments this season, including a staggering 21 strikes from 23 Serie A contests.

Luciano Spalletti’s side hold an incredible 19-point lead at the top of the standings, but the Scudetto chasers will find it difficult to retain Osimhen’s services for the 2023-24 season.

Manchester United and Chelsea are both said to be pushing to bring Osimhen to the Premier League, although Napoli are supposedly holding out for a mammoth £150m fee.

Such a sum of money would prove no problem for financial powerhouses PSG, who have sent Campos to meet with the striker’s camp during the international period, according to Foot Mercato.

Osimhen is currently on duty with Nigeria, who face back-to-back meetings with Guinea-Bissau on Friday and Monday during qualifying for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

The report adds that Campos shares a strong relationship with Osimhen’s representatives, but Napoli’s nine-figure asking price could still prove problematic for PSG due to Financial Fair Play concerns.

Osimhen will not think about his future until the end of the season, but he has reportedly not ruled out remaining at Napoli under new-and-improved terms, with his current contract expiring in 2025.

Napoli doled out €75m (£66.3m) to bring Osimhen to the club from Lille in 2020, and the Nigeria international now has 53 goals and 14 assists from 91 appearances for the Partenopei.
