Paris Saint Germain (PSG) now becomes the first club to make concrete offer to Napoli for the club’s rave-of-the-moment forward Victor Osimhen, but Les Parisiens €100 million offer has been turned down by the Serie A champions.
French Football Weekly reports that President Nasser Al-Khelaifi of PSG gave a check of €100 million to Napoli owner, Aurelio de Laurentiis, but Ciucciarelli boss refused to touch the check having deemed the offer as too low for him to even elicit his consideration.
Considered one of the shrewdest negotiators inn the transfer business, De Laurentiis also cautioned the Qatari owner of PSG not to send him any monetary offer below €180 million if he is serious to recruit Osimhen.
According to the report, this was happening as the Partenopei was deep into negotiation with Roberto Calenda, Osimhen’s agent, regarding a contract extension, with the former Lille striker’s deal with Napoli set to terminate in 2025.
