Victor Osimhen linked with liverpool transfer race despite Napoli’s blunt message



Liverpool are the latest club to be linked with a transfer of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen

Liverpool and Real Madrid have reportedly joined Manchester United in the hunt for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

According to Spanish publication Fichajes, who claim the Reds and Real, who will face off in the Champions League next week, are the latest two clubs to join the race for the striker.

The Nigerian has scored 16 goals in 17 games this season as his Napoli side edged close to Serie A glory. Luciano Spalletti’s side are on course to win their first Scudetto this season since the Diego Maradona era and are 13 points clear of second-placed Inter after 21 games.

According to a recent report from Italy, Napoli hope to extend Osimhen’s current contract by at least one year until June 2026 to protect her interests. While Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis this week insisted that Osimhen was not for sale.

“I can tell you that Osimhen is not for sale,” he told German publication Bild. “There is a lot of demand for our players, but I don’t have to sell anyone. We have no debts.”

Osimhen’s last two Serie A goals this season came in an eventual 3-0 win away to Spezia for Napoli last weekend.

His contract with the Serie A leaders still has 18 months left, but the Italian newspaper says his salary seems “too important” given the salary structure set by the Napoli president. According to the outlet, if a deal cannot be reached in the Italian top flight, his future can only lie in the Premier League and Jurgen Klopp’s side have been mooted.
