EPL clubs Chelsea and Liverpool monitor Victor Osimhen’s contract talks

As Victor Osimhen negotiates a new contract with Napoli, there remains a substantial difference between his salary request and the club’s offer, potentially allowing for a transfer next summer.

The 24-year-old Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen emerged as a standout player in Napoli’s Scudetto-winning season last year, scoring 31 goals in 39 total matches and establishing himself as one of Europe’s most formidable strikers.

Despite the drop in form and off-pitch drama, Osimhen has maintained strong performance this season, registering six goals in eight Serie A matches.

With his current contract having less than two years remaining, Napoli is eager to secure him with a new long-term deal.

As per Daniele Longo’s report on Calciomercato.com, Osimhen desires a doubling of his current salary, from €4.5 million net to €9 million net per season. He and his agent Roberto Calenda are also advocating for an easily accessible release clause.

Napoli’s proposals have fallen far short of the €9 million salary Osimhen desires, and the club aims to establish a release clause exceeding €200 million, resulting in a substantial gap between the two sides.

Liverpool and Chelsea expressed interest in Osimhen during the previous summer transfer window and may consider a return next year if there is no agreement.
