The Lille of France forward arrived the Italian City of Naples on Tuesday and headed to a meeting with the club’s Coach Gennaro Gattuso at their base in Castel Volturno as talks of a potential €70 million euro deal nears conclusion.
According to the players representative, Osita Okolo, who spoke to Radio Punto Nuovo, stated that they have been impressed with what Napoli have offered and will now meet with the club’s president to further solidify it.
“Yesterday, when he arrived in Naples, he headed straight to his first meeting with the club. On the way, he watched people walking around the city streets and confessed to me that he was positively impressed.
“Then he met the coach, Gattuso: they talked about the Napoli project and he was also very impressed on that occasion. Today he’ll meet the president, Aurelio De Laurentiis. He was impressed by Naples and its people, even though the tour around the city was short.
“However, everything went in the right direction. Now, all we need to do is make a decision about the lad’s future.
“I’m not sure what Napoli’s fans think of him, but I knew that everyone who crossed paths with him was very happy to see him in the city.
“I thought that was very nice of the Napolitan people. I’m convinced the fans would also really like Victor’s style of play and that could impact positively on his final decision,” Okolo concluded.
Osimhen has been on the radar of several top European clubs but it now appears Napoli will be his destination with the club willing to make him the most expensive Nigerian buy ever.
