Mixed reports on Osimhen and Napoli

There are reports Victor Osimhen has put his doubts aside and accepted the move to Napoli, but Nigerian sources continue to insist the Lille forward is undecided.

The striker visited Naples and the home of President Aurelio De Laurentiis in Capri earlier this week, as the club put on a charm offensive to convince him to accept.

According to Sportitalia, the tactic worked and Osimhen has put the concerns behind him to accept a transfer to the Stadio San Paolo.

Insigne: 'Totti, Raiola, ADL...'

Lorenzo Insigne confirms he rejected Francesco Totti, explains why he left Mino Raiola and tells Aurelio De Laurentiis he ‘dreams’ of a new Napoli contract.

Insigne recently cut his ties with agent Raiola and was wanted by Totti before he turned to Vincenzo Pisacane.

“He sent me a message, but I calmly told him that I’d make other choices,” he told Corriere della Sera.

“[Leaving Raiola] wasn’t about football or, as I heard, because I had to leave Napoli with him. It was a personal decision.”

Insigne: 'Mutiny was a mistake'

Lorenzo Insigne admits Napoli’s players made a ‘mistake’ for staging a mutiny and claims Carlo Ancelotti should have been ‘breathing down our necks’.

The end of Ancelotti’s reign at Napoli saw Insigne and his teammates refuse to attend a punitive training retreat organised by President Aurelio De Laurentiis.

However, rather than condemning their decision to go against club orders, the coach preferred to keep quiet and sided with his squad.

Roma reliant on Dzeko

Edin Dzeko’s importance to Roma cannot be underestimated, writes Wayne Girard, and there’s still a path to the Champions League.

The late June heat had created a tale of two halves, as Roma became exhausted in the last 45 minutes against Milan at San Siro. Having played one game more than the Giallorossi, the Rossoneri took advantage of their early return to action. They were ultimately rewarded as their pressing caused Davide Zappacosta to err, causing a turnover that led to the goal. In that moment, Roma’s chances of fourth place became the most distant throughout the entire season, and virtually unobtainable as Atalanta toppled Udinese.
