Belgian side Charleroi FC are poised to smile to the bank should Super Eagles and Lille forward Victor Osimhen join Napoli in the summer.
Le Soir, Belgian media, reported that in the event of Osimhen’s transfer from Lille to Naples or to another club, the Belgian side will potentially pocket €7.75 million if a suitor cough out €60m.
Corriere dello Sport reported on Thursday morning that Osimhen was impressed with the long chat with Gattuso and the way he was welcomed in a city, which he described as enchanting.
Besides, the meeting in Capri with Napoli director, Aurelio De Laurentiis was only the last act with the parties who will have to file the last details of the five-year 2.5 million euro per season plus bonus deal and an offer between 50 and 60 million euro demanded by Lille.
Okolo says Osimhen is fond of the city of Naples which is located in southern Italy and interest in him from a big club like Napoli that has sported greats like Diego Maradona and Gonzalo Higuain, is only natural.
There is the question of racism which is very rife in Italy with players such as Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly targeted. Okolo acknowledges the problem and insists this is where the ball lies in Osimhen’s court to make a final decision on his future.
Not less than 12 top European clubs as Arsenal of England had stepped up their efforts to outdo all their rivals in becoming the team to hook his signature this summer.
After snatching Nicolas Pepe from Lille at the beginning of the season, Arsenal was tipped to raid Lille at the end of the current season, with their eyes fully set on the Super Eagles’ striker.
There are four other top teams from Spain and the same number of suitors from Italy who all want to snatch the 21-year-old Super Eagles player this summer with Napoli looking good to sign the towering striker.
The clubs interested in him are Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, as well as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Valencia and Sevilla of Spain so also AC Milan, AS Roma, SS Lazio and AS Napoli of Italy.
