Aurelio De Laurentiis recently admitted that talks were well advanced between Napoli and Victor Osimhen. He is hoping for a renewal before the end of the year. To this end, a meeting is scheduled very soon with the Nigerian star’s agent, Roberto Calenda.
Today’s edition of Il Mattino reports that Aurelio De Laurentiis will soon be meeting Roberto Calenda in a bid to finalize the renewal of Victor Osimhen’s contract. Thirteen meetings have been held so far without any agreement. But the Azzurri boss is hoping to speed things up so that agreement can be reached before the end of the year. The new contract would bind the former Lille man to the reigning Italian champions until 2027. His annual salary is expected to be in the region of €10 million, plus performance-related bonuses. It should be noted that Chelsea are pulling out all the stops to recruit the centre-forward at the upcoming winter mercato.
