Transfer: Big European clubs after Osimhen – Peseiro
Nigeria head coach, Jose Peseiro believes Victor Osimhen will always attract the interest of top clubs around Europe.
Osimhen was linked with a move away from the Serie A champions this summer following an impressive campaign in the Italian top-flight last season.
The striker scored 26 goals in 32 league appearances for the Partenopei.
The Nigerian is, however, yet to sign a contract extension at Napoli and will have a year left on his contract by next summer.
The 24-year-old is expected to be in the news again when the transfer window reopens in January.
Peseiro expects European big guns to queue up to sign the forward.
“He has enormous mental strength,” the Portuguese told Sports Italia.
“In light of everything he has been through, he reacted like a champion and by working with us he has demonstrated it.
“He is sad because he is injured and cannot do what he loves most, which is to play for Napoli. Due to his abilities, for what he has shown, he has and will always have the best clubs in the world that want him.”
