Napoli’s negotiations for Victor Osimhen have moved a step closer after the Lille forward hired a new agent.
It was reported by Football Italia yesterday that the hold-up had been due to Osimhen’s previous agent trying to negotiate extra bonuses for himself.
Now, Sky Sport Italia reports the Nigerian has turned to William D’Avila to oversee the completion of his transfer to Napoli.
D’Avila already has several African players on his books, including Younes Belhanda, Samuel Kalu, Emmanuel Dennis and Aston Villa winger Trezeguet.
In the meantime, Osimhen’s old representatives are ready to take him to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) over what they deem to be unfair dismissal.
However, as that is a separate case, it should not cause any further delays in his proposed move to the Partenopei, worth a reported €81m.
