Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed three destinations where Victor Osimhen could up playing next season.

“We knew it since last summer, the negotiations for his [Osimhen] renewal have been long and friendly for that reason,” the Napoli president said, as per Goal.

“We knew perfectly that he will go to Real Madrid, PSG or some Premier League team.”

Osimhen revealed earlier this week that he already made up his mind about next season.

“The rumour is going around about me linked with the Premier League,” Osimhen told CBS Sports.

“When you’re one of the hottest strikers on the globe, you expect this type of thing, and of course, the Premier League is one of the biggest and best leagues in the whole world.

“I’m with Napoli, I signed a new contract. I’m enjoying my time there. I think I’ve already made up my mind, I already know what I want to do in my career.

“Since I’ve started, I’ve been the one making my own decisions and everything is working out well for me. I already know the next step I want to take, so for now I just want to finish the season strong.

“I will [then] go relax somewhere with my daughter, think about my life and then finally come out with a decision that I’ve already made.”
