Napoli are set to offer Victor Osimhen a new contract, with a potential release clause in excess of £100 million according to Gazzetta dello Sport, after Tottenham registered their interest in signing the Nigeria international.
It’s likely to be an interesting summer transfer window ahead for Spurs, with star striker Harry Kane being linked with a summer departure.
Tottenham are likely to be in the market for a swift replacement, with Gazzetta dello Sport previously reporting that Osimhen was a potential transfer target for the Premier League side.
The 22-year-old netted 10 goals in 30 appearances for the Azzurri in the 2020/21 season, and it appears as though his strong performances in front of goal haven’t gone unnoticed.
According to reports, Tottenham’s interest in signing Osimhen “worries” Napoli, and that is likely to prompt the Serie A club into swift action.
It is claimed that the Azzurri want to offer the forward a new contract in the near future, which would include a release clause exceeding £100 million.
Osimhen has shown that he can score goals at a high level in Serie A with Napoli as well as Ligue 1 with Lille, and he could be decent addition to the north London club ahead of the new league campaign if they can lure him to England.
