Amid interest from Chelsea, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed he consider selling Victor Osimhen if he receives a tempting offer for the striker.

Osimhen netted 31 times during a superb campaign with Napoli, putting him on the radar of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

“We already talked to Osimhen before the Scudetto celebration, so we already have a basic agreement on a two-year extension of his contract,” the Napoli president said.

“I have said for a while that Osimhen has to stay. Then, if an offer came in that I could not refuse for the good of Napoli, then we would consider it, as is only natural.”

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

“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.”
