Victor Osimhen’s future is set to be a major talking point throughout the summer transfer window.
The Nigerian striker enjoyed a magnificent 2022-23 season at Napoli, with his 26 goals and impressive all-round play helping fire the Partenopei to their first Serie A title since 1990.
Interest in the 24-year-old is higher than ever as a result — with numerous Premier League clubs primed to try and acquire his coveted signature.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is hatching a plan to insert an anti-Saudi clause in Osimhen’s new contract.
he wants two separate release clauses in the striker’s deal, one for teams in Europe and one worth almost double for sides in Saudi Arabia.
Al-Hilal have been linked with a move for Osimhen, who is thought to be keen on extending his stay with the Serie A champions.
Al-Hilal have tabled a bid worth nearly £120million for Osimhen.
However, reports suggest that Napoli are holding out for an offer closer to £130m to even consider selling their star player.
Al-Hilal are also willing to offer the Nigerian goalscorer a wage worth over £1million a week to join the Saudi Pro League.
