Antonio Conte requests 1v1 with Osimhen



Antonio Conte requests 1v1 with Osimhen

Super Eagles star, Victor Osimhen has been on the media spotlight lately either based on national team duties or transfer speculations, and now, new manager of Napoli, Antonio Conte is reported to want a word with the striker.

Antonio Conte is said to be eager for a face-to-face meeting with star striker Victor Osimhen amid growing uncertainty over his future with the club.

Conte is determined to convince the Super Eagles forward to remain with the Serie A champions despite ongoing transfer speculation.

Osimhen, whose €130 million release clause has yet to be met by any club, has been linked with several top European teams. However, Chelsea and Manchester United have shifted their focus to younger talents such as Samuel Omorodion and Joshua Zirkzee. Meanwhile, Arsenal is reportedly in talks with Viktor Gyökeres, further complicating the market for Osimhen.

Despite interest from Saudi clubs Al Ahli and Al Hilal, the 25-year-old Nigerian striker has shown no interest in a move to the Saudi Pro League. Additionally, no bid has emerged from Paris Saint-Germain, leaving his future at Napoli in a state of flux.

Conte’s proactive approach aims to secure Osimhen’s commitment to Napoli, ensuring the club retains one of its key players as they prepare for the upcoming season. The meeting between Conte and Osimhen could be pivotal in determining the striker’s future and Napoli’s prospects in defending their Serie A title.
