Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has insisted Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis will decide his future amid interest from Chelsea.

The Nigeria international scored 25 goals in Serie A as Napoli claimed their first league title since 1990. His goal helped Napoli finish an incredible 16 points clear at the top.

“I don’t know, the President has to decide that,” Osimhen said. “I love the people of Napoli, they have shown me so much love. For me, I don’t mind, the president decides and I will just go with the flow.”

“I appreciate the Neapolitans a lot, they deserve this and hopefully we’ll have many more trophies to come,” he added. “It’s an amazing feeling for me, I won the Scudetto, which is the most important thing in my career so far. I am grateful to God for this season, for my teammates, my family, for the Neapolitans and they deserve all of this.

“This season has been brilliant for me, my teammates and the Neapolitans. I think I’ve done so well this season and deserve every good thing I’ve got, but I feel motivated to do even more next season.’

“Everything is possible. Just like when we started the season, lots of people didn’t believe in Napoli. If the president says we can win it, I believe it, everything is possible.”
