Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has confirmed the interests of several clubs interested in his services including Saudi Pro side but he however, will not look beyond his present time with the Patonepei, Nigeriasoccernet.com reports.

Osimhen’s incredible performers for the Serie A giants has seen him attract interests from top clubs across Europe including Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich just to mention few.

The striker last season scored 26 league goals in 32 appearances and five more in the UEFA Champions League.

A week before the commencement of the 2023/24 league season, Napoli had received a mouthwatering offer worth about €200m from a Saudi Pro League club an the  club rejected.

The 24 year-old said all of the speculations are true but he claimed he will give his heart and soul to the Serie A Champions as long as he remains with the club.

“There was a lot of speculation which is true,” admitted Osimhen to DAZN via Footballitalia.

“The president is the boss. We are still negotiating [over a new contract], we’ll see at the end of the transfer window. For now, I am a Napoli player which is the most important thing. I will give my heart and soul to this team as I’ve always done in the past. We’ll see what happens.”

Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda started negotiations with Napoli a few months ago, but the two parties are yet to reach a final agreement.
