Napoli baulk at Osimhen asking price

Napoli are reportedly the favourites for Victor Osimhen, but Lille’s €50m asking price could prove a problem.

The striker has also been linked with Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea, but this week Footmercato, Telefoot and Sport Mediaset all claimed Napoli had agreed personal terms.

Now le10sport in France also point to the Partenopei leading the race, but the Corriere dello Sport warns Lille risk ruining the deal with their asking price.

Considering Lille only paid €12m for Osimhen a year ago, they are now asking for €50m to sell the 21-year-old.

With that in mind, Napoli could turn their focus on to other targets, hoping the Nigerian can push his club into lowering the price-tag.

Osimhen scored 18 goals with six assists in 38 games for LOSC this season.
