The Nigerian, who scored 31 goals in 39 appearances last season, has attracted interest from Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. Osimhen was one of the most prolific strikers in Europe last term, with his performances helping Napoli win a long-awaited Serie A title. The 24-year-old was expected to be poached by a top Premier League club following his breakout season but he now looks set to stay at Napoli, who are demanding more than £100m for his signature. In an interview with SoccerNet, Osimhen said: ‘I have never seen a city crazier about football like the way the Neapolitans are. ‘They show all their players love. And wherever I go to, I am being respected. Kids love me, a lot of people admire me, they idolize me by putting on the replica of my mask. ‘It shows the hard work I have given to them and what I mean to them. And for me, there’s no better place to be than this place. Osimhen starred in Napoli’s Serie A title win last season (Picture: Getty) ‘I am so happy I made the right choice by coming here. And achieving this kind of greatness with the Neapolitans is something that I will wake up and always smile about. ‘My children’s children will come into this world and realize that their father has done something amazing.’ Napoli’s Serie A title triumph was their first since 1990, with a Diego Maradona-inspired side lifting the trophy three years earlier.
