Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has hinted that he would consider selling striker Victor Osimhen before his contract expires in 2025.

Napoli‘s relationship with Osimhen has lately deteriorated after the club’s official TikTok account criticised him for missing a penalty against Bologna.

He suggested at a press conference that the striker could end up being sold, just like defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

“I have never been unhappy with Osimhen,” he told reporters.

“But there are always two people in these things; I have remained the same; if his mood has changed, I can’t do anything about it.

“If after a handshake things change, it’s disappointing, but we take note of it, and then life goes on.

“We have excellent relations with him; his contract expires in 2025, so there is time. Don’t forget that I sold Koulibaly in his last year.”

Premier League giants Chelsea have been tracking the Nigerian striker for some time but have been put off by a price tag reaching £150 million, while Arsenal, Liverpool, and Real Madrid have also been linked.
