Victor Osimhen conducted a 48-hour visit to Naples, meeting with Gennaro Gattuso and Aurelio De Laurentiis and starting to get acquainted with what could be his new club. In the background, director Giuntoli has been working to find an agreement on wages, which would be around €5m after taxes per season. Negotiations with Lille still must be completed.
The French club's president Gerard Perez was interviewed on "La Voix du Nord," where he confirmed the talks, explaining the situation: "Napoli is just below Juventus and Barcelona, they can be considered on the same level of Atletico Madrid. if Osimhen should go there, he would become their superstar: he has the quality to play under pressure and I believe he would have a city like Napoli at his feet, which would be a unique thing in the career of a player. We have received differing offers for him, we are in agreement on discussing what will be best for his future, and with which coach he would do best with."
