Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have reportedly agreed to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen during the forthcoming summer transfer window, according to Italian media. According to the 25-year-old, who signed a new contract with Napoli in December that included a €130 million release clause, is set to leave the Italian club at the end of this season and PSG have agreed to meet the expensive release clause in order to obtain Osimhen’s services.

“Victor Osimhen and Napoli will part ways at the end of the current season, with the player set to be sold upon payment of the €130 million release clause,” as quoted by Area Napoli.

“It’s farewell to Italy. Osimhen’s final weeks in Italy are upon us, with PSG very close to securing his services.

“The agreement is almost finalized, with concrete steps taken between Osimhen, his representatives, and PSG’s Qatari owners.

“Paris stands as Osimhen’s top choice, and PSG is eager to conclude the deal swiftly.”

According to Il Mattino, Osimhen’s move to PSG will see him earn a staggering €13 million (N17bn) annually over a four-year contract, with additional control over his image rights.

“The Nigerian sensation is set to earn over €13million per year for the next four years. He will manage his image rights independently and is expected to sign lucrative sponsorship deals with Qatari partners associated with President Al-Khelaifi’s club.

“Any potential last-minute efforts from Premier League clubs to hijack the deal seem unlikely to derail PSG’s plans at this stage.”
