The case is different, however, for Premier League side Chelsea, who have reportedly established contact with Napoli over Osimhen’s transfer.
The Blues now have Bayern Munich to contend with, as the Bavarians are reportedly interested in taking the Nigeria international to the Allianz Arena in the summer.
The German Bundesliga league leaders are yet to replace Robert Lewandowski, who moved to Barcelona in the summer.
He is third behind Harry Kane and Erling Haaland in the European golden shoe race and is leading the line in the Serie A Capocannoniere race.
Injuries have also contributed to his current position, which suggests that he could be doing much better if he had stayed fit for the whole season.
He has impressed enough, however, to be able to draw the attention of the world’s top teams.
The Nigerian, voted the best foreign player in Italy by the foreign press, is now a fan favourite in the city.
Osimhen, however, could be out of that fixture, casting a shadow of doubt over the Neapolitans’ ability to make it past their Serie A rivals in the competition.
You will recall that the striker made an erroneous tweet which indicated that he would be out for the rest of the season, before deleting it as the prognosis was made public by De Laurentiis.
