The former Royal Charleroi striker has been linked with a move to top sides in Europe, but he won’t be joining I Partenopei
Super Eagles striker has rejected a move to Serie A side, Napoli, who are reportedly in the pole position to sign the 21-yea-old striker.
Soccernet had reported that Osimhen has agreed to join Gli Azzurri provided an agreement can be reached with Lille.
However, according to French football journalist, Manulonjon, the Nigerian international who is in high-demand has rejected a move to join Genaro Gattuso led side.
Victor Osimhen ( LOSC) a bien refusé Naples.
Le Napoli vient de se positionner officiellement auprès de Bruges pour Emmanuel Dennis !

His decision to reject Napoli should come as a little surprise given he had already ruled out a move to Italy according to previous reports.
The Nigeria international had an impressive first campaign with Lille whom he joined from Royal Charleroi for 12m euros last summer.
Osimhen finished as Les Dogues topscorer in his debut season with 18 goals and six assists in 38 appearances. It remains to be seen if he will be at Stade Pierre-Mauroy next season.
