Victor Osimhen missed a crucial penalty as Napoli dropped points against Bologna and the world continues to react.
Osimhen's Napoli future in doubt
Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal made an offer of around €150m for Osimhen that was rejected in the summer and they will certainly be paying close attention to proceedings in Italy.
Osimhen's Napoli deal runs till 2025 and up till now last season's Golden Boot winner has shown no real interest in extending that contract, leading many to believe a transfer could happen sooner or later.
The striker's future in Naples has been thrown into serious doubt over TikTok videos published and since deleted by the reigning Italian champions.
One of the videos centered around the striker's penalty miss against Bologna and the actions prompted his agent to reveal the possibility of taking legal action against the club.
Osimhen to Chelsea, Real Madrid or Saudi Arabia?
Chelsea and Real Madrid have real interest in the Super Eagles forward but the price tag may be a factor for the LaLiga side, who also maintain a firm interest in signing Kylian Mbappe from PSG next summer.
