Spalletti: Napoli can’t turn down a €100m bid for forward Osimhen

Napoli head coach Luciano Spalletti says it would be ‘difficult’ to reject a €100m bid for forward Victor Osimhen.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with the Super Eagles forward as they seek to strengthen Erik ten Hag’s attack.

Osimhen has attracted interest from across Europe this summer, with Arsenal reportedly interested before the Gunners signed top target Gabriel Jesus.

However, the 23-year-old has remained at Napoli and has just days before the transfer window slams shut.

Spalletti has slapped a whopping £85m transfer price tag on the head of Osimhen.

He told journalists following a 0-0 draw with Fiorentina: “I don’t have time to think about these things, we have a game every few days. Is the club thinking about it? The club thinks of any situation that is of interest to our players.

“I say that if a club offers you €100m, it is not easy to say no. Since I arrived here, all the players have been on the market for the right price.”

So far in this campaign, Osimhen has managed three appearances, scored two goals and registered one assist.

A first league goal of the season came against Hellas Verona in a 5-2 victory on August 15.
Last season, Osimhen made 27 Serie A appearances for Napoli, scored 14 goals and provided two assists.

Napoli have already lost a number of key players this summer including Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens, Kalidou Koulibaly, David Ospina and Andrea Petagna.
