Victor Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda and Napoli are still negotiating a contract extension and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the striker could have a release clause included in his new deal with the Partenopei.

Osimhen arrived at Napoli’s hotel in Dimaro on Tuesday with his agent Roberto Calenda.

The striker’s contract expires in June 2025, but Napoli are already working to extend his stay at the Stadio Maradona.

According to Wednesday’s printed edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Napoli have rejected a €100m bid from PSG, demanding €200m. Osimhen is happy to stay at the club but his agent wants a salary in line with the striker’s price tag.

Napoli are ready to offer a new two-year deal worth €6.5m per season, making Osimhen the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

According to the report, however, the striker’s agent aims for more and is not entirely convinced about a release clause of over €100m that Napoli directors are willing to include in the new deal.

Negotiations over Osimhen’s salary and release clause will continue in the coming hours, given that Calenda hasn’t yet left Dimaro.
