Statement made by Folabi

''I will only advice Osimhen not to be distracted with all these speculation and continue with Napoli next season because the fans want him there. He should play to the level of him captaining the club.''

Hag prefers Harry Kane

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Erik Ten Hag, who is the manager of Premier League side Manchester United, backed his chiefs at Old Trafford to sign Nigeria and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen.

The Serie A star and Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane have been linked with move to Old Trafford, but the Red Devils gaffer reportedly has more interest in the Super Eagles star.

So far this season in the Serie A, Osimhen has been in incredible form for Napoli, with the Nigerian registering 16 goals already and on form to score even more.
