I rejected tempting Saudi offers to stay with Napoli

Victor Osimhen has revealed he rejected big offers from Saudi Arabia to stay with Napoli in the summer.

Saudi Arabia Professional Football League outfit, Al Hilal were desperate to price away the forward from Napoli.

The Serie A champions reportedly rejected two offers from the Blue Waves for the Nigeria international.

Osimhen said the offer was tempting but he decided to stick with Napoli.
“I never thought of [leaving in summer] at first. But when this huge offer came from a Saudi club [Al-Hilal] it was tempting. It was a big one… I had three meetings & made up my mind to stick with the team,” Osimhen told Obionepodcast.

“In August it was a huge decision for me to take. The more I said no to these people the more they increased their offer. It was literally like ‘wow’… they never gave up until the end of their transfer window.”
