Osimhen looks set to leave Napoli this summer, but Napoli seem to have a contingency plan
Osimhen was the best striker in Italy last season. He scored 26 goals in the Serie A to become the first African player to win the Capocannoniere. His brilliance also earned Napoli their first Scudetto in 33 years.
Napoli would demand at least €150million from potential suitors for the deal to happen. But that could be a difficult ask.
Nonetheless, there is still a risk of losing Osimhen, and Napoli would have to make plans to ensure that his departure is not felt.
The club have officially signed Simeone from Hellas Verona for €12million. The Argentine forward spent last season on loan at Napoli, and he registered nine goals and one assist in 33 appearances.
He played second fiddle to Osimhen for most of last season. But with the 24-year-old’s likely exit, he may become the main man for the Partenopeans.
