21st September 2023
Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen is expected to sign a new deal with Napoli in the coming weeks and the new salary in the contract has been revealed, Soccernet.ng reports.
The 24-year-old has been one of the most coveted strikers in world football in recent weeks after a breakthrough season with Napoli that saw him help the club win their first Serie A title in 33 years.
He scored career-high 31 goals in all competitions last campaign, achieving the feat of being the first African player to win the Italian championship top scorer award with 26 goals.
After a remarkable season, it was not surprising to see him linked with the biggest teams in Europe like Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Paris Saint-Germain, but none of these clubs was able to strike a deal with Napoli before the end of the window.
The former Lille striker also got offers from the Middle East with Saudi giant, Al Hilal reported to have had two bids rejected by Napoli in the summer window.
