The 24-year-old Nigerian forward and his current club have initiated discussions regarding a contract extension, with just two years left on his present agreement.
Osimhen’s impressive performances last season played a pivotal role in helping Napoli secure their first Serie A title in 33 years, making him a beloved figure at the club.
