However, the Nigerian international however emphasized that his primary focus is on negotiations with Napoli.
“There was a lot of speculation which is true. The president is the boss. We are still negotiating [the new contract],
“We’ll see at the end of the transfer window. For now, I am a Napoli player which is the most important thing.
“I will give my heart and soul to this team as I’ve always done in the past. We’ll see what happens.” Osimhen told DAZN, as quoted by TuttoNapoli.
During Napoli’s campaign opener against Frosinone, the 24-year-old forward showcased his prowess by scoring a brace, contributing significantly to the team’s 3-1 victory.
