Victor Osimhen will sign for Napoli over the next 48 hours, our sources tell Football Italia, as the problem was always with his agent, who is now threatening to sue the Lille striker.
Multiple sources including L’Equipe claim that final negotiations are taking place today and tomorrow in Sardinia to secure the deal, worth in the region of €81m.
The Corriere dello Sport maintain it’ll be €50m cash plus full-back Adam Ounas to cover the difference.
Our sources close to Osimhen confirm the issue that had prompted him to turn down Napoli last week was with his entourage and that was smoothed over by the arrival of a new intermediary.
Now those same sources confirm – as is also reported by RAI Sport and CalcioNapoli24 – that the previous agent was trying to negotiate extra bonuses for himself rather than focusing on the best deal for the player.
The agent will be sacked and is now threatening to sue Osimhen.
Radio Punto Nuovo also state that Osimhen has joined the negotiations on Lille President Gerard Lopez’s yacht off the coast of Sardinia.
By all accounts, he could have his medical with Napoli on Thursday.
