Al Hilal Makes £120m Bid For Napoli Star Osimhen

July 09, (THEWILL) – Al Hilal, a Saudi Pro League club, has made a £120.3 million bid for Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen. The offer includes wages of £1 million per week for the Nigerian international. Napoli values Osimhen at £128.8 million, slightly higher than the current bid.

The 24-year-old forward was instrumental in Napoli’s Serie A title win last season, scoring 26 goals. His current contract with Napoli runs until 2025, with extension talks currently at a standstill. Napoli’s president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has indicated the club would consider offers they “could not refuse”.

Al Hilal has been active in the transfer market, previously making a £259 million bid for Kylian Mbappe, which was accepted by Paris Saint-Germain but rejected by the player. The Saudi club has already signed several high-profile players previously, including Ruben Neves from Wolverhampton Wanderers and Kalidou Koulibaly from Chelsea.

The Saudi Pro League has attracted numerous big-name players in 2024, with lucrative offers drawing talent from European leagues. This trend has led to increased scrutiny of Saudi Arabian football investments and their impact on the global transfer market.

It remains uncertain whether Napoli will accept Al Hilal’s offer for Osimhen. The Italian club may hold out for a higher bid, given their valuation of the player and his importance to the team. The outcome of this transfer saga could have significant implications for both clubs and the broader football transfer landscape.
