Striker Victor Osimhen discusses his future at Napoli, the offers he received this summer and his preferred destination.
The Nigerian child is inspired by his compatriot John Obi Mikel, former Chelsea midfielder, mostly retired, available in the Arab world: “I have to be honest, I never considered leaving, especially since Napoli wanted me to stay. But when the offer from Saudi Arabia came, it was hard to refuse. Every time I said no, they increased their offer, again and again. “It’s a summer that can come back to life, but it’s definitive, I don’t say anything, I rest where I am”.
Osimhen opens the door to two clubs
The Nigerian, in individual form with 6 goals in 10 matches, while Naples dismissed coach Rudi Garcia for hire Walter Mazzarri, a preference for a champion and two teams: “If you have a preferred team, you can have two jerseys: Chelsea and Manchester United. It was a great blow for our friends who are fans of Chelsea and a month of United. “The Premier League is the champion of the most popular and most followed for all African (Site notre bureau spécialisé)ers”.
Victor Osimhen is open to the idea of signing for Chelsea.

This statement is based on the interest of Chelsea, who are in the Premier League (10th), and that Manchester United recently signed the young Dane, 20 years old, Rasmus Hojlund, for 75 million euros for the first time, notably thus the chances of a transfer for Victor Osimhen.
Naples, « it’s crazy ! »
The Nigerian international, who has 28 caps, is under contract with Naples until 2025 and is not unhappy in the Italian city, perhaps sometimes encountering difficulties off the field: “I can’t walk around the center of Naples and I can’t even visit the Maradona fresco, but when I go to eat pizza, they don’t charge me and they thank me for what I do for the city: it’s incredible !
If we open the door to the Premier League, clubs are interested in spending a nice silver medal, the president of the Italian club, Aurelio de Laurentiis, is ready to refuse astronomical offers.
