Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis discussed the new arrival of striker Victor Osimhen, speaking with Sky Sport. The president also gave some other thoughts on the transfer market for his club: "Gattuso and Giuntoli both wanted him, and they convinced me to part with €70m. With bonuses it can rise to €80m, and if you consider the wages which rise over the course of the deal overall this is a €100m+ deal. He is not a player we are expecting to be ready right away. He is not a 25-30 goal scorer, but he should bring an extra element of great play to the team, scoring and providing for his teammates."
"Milik? He is on the market as always. He has not responded for as long as we've offered a contract extension. So this action will lead to his departure. Whoever has the best offer will take him, there will not be discounts handed out to anyone. Otherwise he risks staying at Napoli and probably remaining out of the coach's selections."
The president also discussed a possible sale of Koulibaly: “Kalidou is a great person, I would be terribly sad to lose him. But there is a time for everything, even to move apart. But the €90m is not on the table and so it takes two to make a deal."
