Serie A: Napoli sporting director keen to keep Osimhen from European big guns

Victor Osimhen’s retention at Napoli, according to sporting director Mauro Meluso, would be a major accomplishment for him.

Meluso, who took over for Cristiano Guintoli as Napoli’s sporting director last week, is a new face at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Recently, Guintoli left the Serie A champions to accept a similar position at Juventus.

Osimhen was crucial to Napoli’s Scudetto triumph last year.

The 24-year-old scored 26 goals to take home the top scorer honor in Serie A.

Top European clubs including Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, and Bayern Munich have shown interest in the Nigerian.

But Meluso is committed to keeping the striker with the team.

Meluso was quoted by Tutto Napoli as saying, “I’ve just arrived, and I understand that retaining Osimhen would be a significant achievement.”

“Players like him are hard to find, and he brings a special dimension to the team.”
