Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen is expected to get a new deal after his impressive performances for Napoli have put him on the radar of top clubs in Europe and the Italian club have no intention of losing their star man.
Luciano Spalletti’s side are on track to win their first Scudetto since the days of Diego Maradona this campaign, sitting 13 points clear of second place Inter after 21 games.
A key reason for their success has been the incredible work of Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who have scored 24 league goals between them this season, attracting attention from across Europe.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has been in contact with the representatives of both Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia in recent weeks, keen to ensure that all parties are on the same page.
Both the Nigerian and Georgian are happy in Campania and have expressed their intentions to stay beyond this season, despite the various transfer market rumours.
Napoli are hoping to extend Osimhen’s current deal by at least one year, to June 2026, in order to protect them from the interested Manchester United and Chelsea. His salary, currently €4.5m net per season, could also rise further with the inclusion of some lucrative add-ons.
Things are a little different for Kvaratskhelia, who has a long contract lasting until 2027 but a significantly lower salary. At the end of the season, the Partenopei will discuss doubling his wages, rewarding him for his incredible debut year in Serie A.
