Victor Osimhen, the Nigerian footballer who currently plays for Napoli, has demanded a salary of €7m per year in order to extend his contract with the club.
Napoli, who are already in talks to extend Osimhen’s contract, are also considering including a €200m release clause in the new deal.
Osimhen’s impressive performance, including being the leading scorer in Italy’s topflight league, has attracted interest from clubs such as PSG, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, and Bayern Munich.
Negotiations are ongoing, and a possible solution could involve Napoli meeting Osimhen’s wage demand while also including a release clause and shared image rights in the contract.
Both parties are working towards closing a deal as quickly as possible.
Additionally, it has been reported that Osimhen is Paris Saint-Germain’s main target if Kylian Mbappe leaves the club this summer.
Osimhen joined Napoli in 2020 and has since scored 50 goals in 83 Serie A matches.
His current contract expires in June 2025.
