Saudi ‘oil money’ air raid warning, Napoli linked with striker ‘mouthwatering’

September 28, 2023 | by

Saudi ‘oil money’ swoop alert.

Saudi Arabian clubs are expected to make a January swoop for Napoli’s out-of-favor striker Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen has developed into one of Europe’s best strikers who needs no introduction. Last season, he scored 26 goals in 32 Serie A games to lead his team to the title.

A number of big clubs wanted him, but with a price tag of well over £100 million, even the richest clubs were reluctant to budge. He was linked with a move this summer, but ultimately stayed with Napoli.

However, things have been looking up for Osimhen and Napoli lately. After a recent match against Bologna, Napoli posted a video mocking Osimhen on their official social media accounts. The racist video was quickly deleted, but it went viral around the world. Osimhen reportedly reacted with great anger. He removed all photos of himself in a Napoli jersey from his social media accounts. The club has not explained why the video was posted on their social media accounts.

According to the Daily Mail, it is now looking increasingly likely that Osimhen will leave the club in the January transfer window, with Saudi clubs lining up after noticing the feud between the two sides.

Of course, big clubs such as Chelsea and Real Madrid will also be in the race for a frontline striker, but as we saw in this summer’s transfer market, the Saudis cannot be counted out. They use their deep pockets to lure opposing clubs and star players 굿모닝토토.

Napoli want a transfer fee of at least £100 million for Osimhen. The reality is that not many European clubs can beat the Saudis in a money battle.
