Napoli coach, Gennaro Gattuso has come out to say that Nigerian forward, Victor Osimhen is still a Lille player.
Gattuso recently revealed that he cannot comment on a player who is signed to another club even if speculations are hinting at Victor joining the Italian club.
According to him, Napoli will do very little in the market because most of his players will stay at the club this season.
He, however, added that any player that will come in will definitely add to quality in the team.
His words, “He [Osimhen] is currently a Lille player. I cannot comment,”
“We will do little on the market, 70-80% [of players] will remain and whoever arrives will have to give us quality and quantity,”
“For this, we must raise the bar because many will remain and we must improve.”
Osimhen’s agent added, “Napoli’s interest is important. De Laurentiis and the manager [Gattuso] really like Victor. There have already been several contacts,”
“Victor likes Naples, a fantastic city, and obviously he also likes Napoli as a team. The interest of a big Italian [club] personally does not surprise me considering how well he did with Lille.”
