It has been said that Napoli have already identified Sassuolo star Gianluca Scamacca as a possible replacement for Osimhen.

Speaking last week, Osimhen hinted he wishes to remain at Napoli after discussing his love for boss Luciano Spalletti.

The striker told Radio Kiss Kiss: “I have to thank Spalletti so much.

“He helped me a lot in my growth as a footballer from many points of view, and I have to thank him and his staff for helping me score all these goals.

“They helped me improve my movement. He always talks to me after training and trains me both with and without the ball.

“I know I’m dealing with a very high-level coach, really. It is a great honour and a real pleasure to be trained by him, and I hope to be able to work with him for many more years.”
