Faced with the potential of losing the Super Eagles forward, Napoli have turned their attention to getting the Inter Milan and Bosnia attacker
With possibilities of a potential Victor Osimhen exit from the Maradona, Napoli have lined up Edin Dzeko as a potential alternative, according to TuttoNapoli.
Napoli have also indicated they will go for Dzeko regardless of Osimhen’s situation as they seek a stronger alternative to the Nigerian instead of Andrea Petagna.
The Azzurri are demanding €110m for Osimhen with reports in Italy stating that a £51m bid from Arsenal was rejected.
Osimhen has suitors from other clubs and has failed to rule out a move from Naples. When he was asked on his future, he said “anything can happen”.
Those are however sketchy indications as to his future with the attacker looking comfortable at Napoli and potentially fancying having a real go at the Serie A.
His 14 goals and 5 assists in 27 games helped Napoli to a third position finish last season.
Dzeko, who left Roma for Inter Milan last season may also be on his way out of the club and Luciano Spalletti is keeping close tabs on the situation in the capital.
