Napoli has held seven meetings with Victor Osimhen’s agent and has launched a plan for a clause that would protect him from the interest of Saudi clubs.
The Nigerian wants to sign a new long-term contract with the Partenopei and is hoping for a pay rise commensurate with his importance to the club.
Likewise, the 24-year-old is also interested in a clause that would offer him greater control over his future.
Al Hilal has expressed serious interest in the transfer of Osimhen this summer and the club from the Saudi Pro League is willing to pay him one million euros per week.
Sky Sports Italia details that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is considering including two release clauses in the forward’s contract – one for European clubs and another nearly twice as high for Saudi clubs.
The footballer’s representatives want the basic clause to be worth 110 million euros, while the Partenopei want it to be at least 150 million euros.
