Napoli denies owner made negative comment on Osimhen


Napoli have denied reports that its owner Aurelio De Laurentiis made negative comments about Victor Osimhen.

Mediaset quoted De Laurentiis saying that he is willing to sell off the Nigerian if he refuses to sign a new contract.

However in a statement released by the club, Napoli said they plan to resume negotiations with the Osimhen’s agent over a contract extension in the next few weeks.

The statement reads, “President de Laurentiis never shared any negative comment about Victor. He just said that after verbally agreeing on plan to sign a new deal, Osimhen changed his mind.”

“We hope it’s just stand-by moment to think about it. In the next weeks we will discuss with his agent Calenda about the future.

“Reports of a tense situation between Napoli and Osimhen are 100% wide of the mark.”

The 24-year-old who sustained a thigh injury while on international duty last weekend has scored six times in 10 appearances across all competitions for Rudi Garcia’s side this season.
