Irked by reports making the rounds that his client has rejected Napoli transfer bid, Osimhen Agent, Osita Okolo said Napoli deal is on even though the Lille striker is under pressure to make a final decision.
It was believed that Napoli had already reached an agreement with Osimhen’s club OSC Lille for a reported €70m fee.
Later on, it was claimed that Osimhen did not want to move to Italy because of the country’s racism problem.
But Osita told Radio Punto Nuovo on Friday that talks are still ongoing adding that Osimhen is weighing up every option regarding Napoli before making his final decision.
