Osimhen is valued at €150m (£128.8m) by Napoli but the club president has said they are willing to consider offers “we could not refuse” as contract extension talks stall. The Nigeria international scored 26 times in Serie A last term as Napoli won the title for the first time in 33 years.
An offer of €140m (£120.3m) has been made to Napoli by Al Hilal for striker Victor Osimhen.

The Saudi Pro League club have already had a bid of €300m (£259m) for Paris St-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe accepted this summer – although the player declined to meet with them – and also tried to sign Lionel Messi before he moved to Inter Miami.

It is thought Napoli would want more than €150m (£128.8m) to even consider selling a player who finished top of the Serie A goalscoring chart last season as they won the league title.

Osimhen, aged 24, was a transfer target for Manchester United this summer, with talks over renewing his contract with Napoli stalling.

Sky Italy reports a meeting between Napoli and Osimhen’s agent failed to resolve an extension to his deal. This runs until 2025.

Upon being asked about the status of Osimhen’s updated contract, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis responded, “We have agreed to a two-year extension, but we are willing to consider any offer we cannot refuse.”

Ruben Neves from Wolves, Kalidou Koulibaly from Chelsea and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio have all signed for Al Hilal this summer.
