Napoli held an all hands on deck meeting with the entire front office and Victor Osimhen’s entourage early in the ongoing withdrawal. President Aurelio De Laurentiis recently expressed his concerns about the club’s finances. He doesn’t want to sell his ace but it would be difficult to turn down offers over €100m.
Corresponding Corriere dello Sport, Manchester United started the race with vigor after signing Erik Ten Hag. They now lead it ahead of Newcastle, who made a serious attempt in January, and Arsenal. That Partenopei have started making some calls to be ready when the Nigerian starter leaves.
At this point, they’d have plenty of ammo to make a splash. They would try to pounce on Gianluca Scamacca if Inter and Milan didn’t get him on board quickly in the summer. They have their sights set on Ajax’s Sebastien Haller. However, he will find himself in the middle of a bidding war between rich clubs. The latest addition to their list is Martin Terrier, who has scored 21 goals with Rennes this season.
Napoli have expressed interest in Giovanni Simeone, but for a complementary role rather than replacing Osimhen, the publication states. That pursuit depends on the future of Dries Mertens and Andrea Petagna. That Azzurri are also pursuing Armando Broja, but the current situation at Chelsea makes talks about their players premature. That Partenopei I didn’t rule out chasing Andrea Belotti if he left Torino at large and other teams didn’t catch him in a short time.
