The president of Aurelio De Laurentiis has been told that his valuation of Nigerian Victor Osimhen is way above what his real value is by Italian football agent Marco Gentilo.
Napoli are reportedly holding out for a fee in the region of €100 million for the Nigerian with talks of interest from Manchester United and Arsenal as well as fellow Series A side AC Milan.
Osimhen confirmed that he will be staying at the club for many more years putting an end to speculation but Gentilo insist it is only logical for him to pledge his future to Napoli as their valuation of him is excessive.
He said Osimhen hasn’t quite lived up to his price tag hence placing a €100 valuation on him is excessive despite the fact that the transfer market is currently inflated.
” No club will pay €100 million for Osimhen who is still in the potential room. He doesn’t have the numbers to justify the fee paid to sign him from Lille. How can he now be valued higher”, Gentilo said in a chat with OwnGoalNigeria.com.
” I know the market is inflated but there are still valuations that is to me and other a joke. Nothing more than a joke. It’s wise Osimhen stays at Napoli. It’s only logical”, he concluded.
