Victor Osimhen transfer remains difficult this January
The focus of Victor Osimhen is on his future, because at the moment there is no agreement with Napoli over a new deal, it is all very quiet. Still, from what I’m told the position of Napoli in the January transfer window remains the same - they don’t want to sell Osimhen in January, not even a crazy bid would change their minds, that’s their current position.
Still, we know crazy things can happen - remember that one year ago Benfica didn’t want to sell Enzo Fernandez but then Chelsea decided to trigger the release clause of the player at the last minute after a long negotiation and they were able to sign the player. In Napoli’s case, they really want to fight to keep Osimhen until the end of the season, so it’s going to be more than difficult to make the deal happen in January.
