Italian Serie A giants, Napoli are reportedly ready to drop their asking price for Nigeria’s Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen as his future grows ever more uncertain.

The 25-year-old is looking for a move away from Serie A but Napoli’s initial €150M release clause has warned off many potential suitors.

According to Calciomercato.com, the Partenopei now may be ready to lower that initial valuation to €100M, in the hope that they can free up much needed transfer funds for new boss Antonio Conte, who is understood to be desperate to land Belgian international striker, Romelu Lukaku this summer.

Calciomercato writer, Daniele Longo also states that Chelsea, who were understood to be in pole-position to sign the former Lille player has never opened any negotiation with the 2023 Serie A champions.

The only avenues open at this time seem to be the Saudi Pro-League, where a reported salary of €40M a season has been offered, or Paris Saint-Germain, with Osimhen not keen on either option, preferring a move to the English Premier League.
