Victor Osimhen to sign new Napoli contract soon – Meluso


Napoli sporting director, Mauro Meluso, has revealed that the club is working out the final details of Victor Osimhen’s contract.

Osimhen’s current contract will expire in 2025 but he is reportedly ready to sign an extension for a further year.

A release clause of €130-140m is also expected to be inserted into the contract.

Meluso stated that the Serie A champions will make an announcement on the new contract soon.

“We are accustomed to working behind the scenes and without big announcements before things are done. It will obviously be up to President Aurelio De Laurentiis to give the news,” Meluso told Mediaset.

“It has been a long negotiation process and we hope to conclude it, but only make announcements when everything is sealed. Both parties are eager to get this deal closed and we’ll see what happens over the next few weeks.”

Osimhen has registered seven goals in 12 league appearances for the Partenopei this season.
