The Nigerian international shined for Napoli last season when he helped the club win the Serie A championship. He scored 31 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions.
The striker is expected to leave Napoli in the summer transfer window but with him under contract until 2025, the reigning Italian champions demand a fee of around £150 million.
Notably, information appeared that Liverpool had reached an initial agreement to recruit Osimhen. However, the truth is not so.
Specifically, Romano confirmed: “A player we will definitely have to monitor in 2024 is Osimhen. Many people ask me about Chelsea’s interest, as well as about Manchester United negotiating to have him.” over a year ago.
I can confirm that Chelsea is still keeping an eye on Osimhen. Although some media say that Osimhen has agreed to sign for Liverpool, I understand that he has not agreed anything with any club. There is not even an agreement on a new contract with Napoli.
Osimhen needs time, but for now I can say that The link with Liverpool is untrue. Of course, Liverpool and many other clubs are eyeing top strikers across Europe, but nothing has been agreed yet. We’ll have to wait and see how it progresses.”
