Napoli are growing increasingly confident of keeping Manchester United and Chelsea target Victor Osimhen by agreeing a new deal with him.

According to Corriere del Mezzogiorno via Tuttonapoli, another round of discussion is set to take place between Napoli and Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda over the details of the proposed deal.

Per the report, bar any monstrous offer from any of the striker’s suitors, he should stay for another year in Naples with his contract renewed and a probable release clause inserted into the new deal.

The Italian Serie A champions are in a hurry to tie down their No.9 to a long-term contract to prevent him from leaving this summer.

The Naples-based club won the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years with the help of the former Lille forward last season and they intend to defend the title next season counting on the services of the world-class striker.

The Super Eagles forward has attracted the interest of Manchester United and Chelsea, having established himself as one of the most clinical strikers in Europe.

Osimhen is also on the radar of French Ligue 1 champions PSG, while Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich consider him as an alternative option to their primary target Harry Kane.
