Italian international, Giovanni Simeone has warned Napoli to step down their valuation of Victor Osimhen as suitor closes in on the Nigerian international.
Giovanni Simeone’s Italian intermediary Alessandro Moggi fears Napoli’s valuation of Victor Osimhen could complicate his move from the club in the summer transfer window.
The Nigeria international has been linked with possible moves to Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in recent days but he would not be leaving Napoli on the cheap if a deal should happen.
Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis has set a price tag of 100 million euros (approximately N43.6 billion) for the 23-year-old, who has three years left on his contract with The Blues.
Speaking to Radio Marte via trivenetogoal.it, Moggi explained : “Is 100 million for Osimhen a fair amount? It seems to me a super important figure, I don’t know if Napoli will be able to find such an important figure on the market for Osimhen.
“He is among the most promising on the market, but 100 million in my opinion is an extremely high price. It depends on what Napoli wants to do. “
In 2020, Osimhen landed at Napoli for a club record fee of 70 million euros, if performance-related add-ons are not included.
Given his 37 goal involvements (28 goals, 9 assists) in 62 matches for Napoli, it is easy to see why several top teams are linked with a move for the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup Golden Boot winner.
