  • The immediate future of Victor Osimhen continues to dominate headlines
  • The Nigerian looks poised to depart Napoli in the summer transfer window
  • A transfer expert has outlined how much he could be offered to leave Napoli

The imminent future of Victor Osimhen is poised to dominate headlines during the 2024 summer transfer window.

The marquee forward, who recently extended his contract with Napoli, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Italian Serie A to the Premier League clubs, Chelsea and Arsenal, or Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain.

Speculation about the 25-year-old's future at the Stadio Diego Maradona intensified after reports suggested Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentis, would be open to selling the forward, provided the right offer is made.

As the rumours continue to swirl about where Osimhen will feature next season, a report has emerged outlining how much the Nigerian forward is expected to request as his wages from either Arsenal, Chelsea, or PSG.

Osimhen’s reported salary demands

Per insights shared by football transfer expert, Ben Jacobs, via Givemesport, the 2023 Africa Footballer of the Year is poised to negotiate a salary hovering around £250,000 with any of three potential clubs.

Jacobs also emphasised PSG's keen interest in Osimhen, positioning him as a top priority amid the backdrop of Kylian Mbappe's impending departure, which potentially frees up resources for the French giants to make a move in the market.

The report further indicates the Nigerian's preference for the Premier League, which appears encouraging for Chelsea and Arsenal’s pursuit.

It is also worth noting that his wage expectations of £250,000 per week are within the realm of acceptability for all three clubs mentioned.

This revelation from the transfer expert adds yet another layer of intrigue to what is shaping up to be an enthralling transfer saga.

Gernot Rohr names ideal club for Osimhen

Sports Brief also previously reported that former Super Eagles of Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr, has identified the perfect club for Osimhen.

The septuagenarian, who gave the forward his national debut, suggested the importance of the forward joining a team that fits his style of play.

The Franco-German, however, hinted that a return to Ligue 1 would delight many fans of the marquee forward, who played for Lille before.
