Victor Osimhen has been having a fantastic season. He has helped Napoli reach the top spot in Serie A and continues to have an impressive Champions League season. With rumours floating about a January transfer switch, he has firmly denied any transfer activity.
The 23-year-old Nigerian is happy in Italy as he wants to focus on winning some trophies for Napoli. “It’s one of the best clubs in Europe and I want to win here. The future is this moment, try to win something relevant in Italy. It’s hard to think about something better than Napoli, one of the best clubs in Italy, right now I am only focused on this season because we haven’t done anything yet. We must win something and then we’ll see what happens,” he told Il Mattino.
He said, “We’re looking forward to starting again. Nobody thinks that these eight points give any guarantee for the future. The season is long and we are aware that we must not slow down to keep the lead. We must continue like this, work hard, pretending we are not at the top of the table. We must not think about those looking forward to our defeat. We want to beat Inter [in their next game], but it won’t be easy.”
The forward will return to competitive action against Inter on January 4, with it appearing certain he’ll be staying put in Naples, until the end of the 2022-23 season at least.
