Napoli have raised the price tag of Nigeria international Victor Osimhen to €120m after a host of interest from several European clubs including Arsenal, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Tottenham, Newcastle and others.

Osimhen has been Napoli’s best player this season, scoring 15 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions and providing four assists, despite spells on the sidelines due to injuries and COVID-19.

The energetic striker’s performance in Serie A has earned him two Player of The Month awards for September 2021 and February 2022.

According to Italian website Il Corriere dello Sport, Newcastle in January offered €100m for the Nigerian striker, which was rejected.

Previous reports in Italy claimed €100m would have been enough at the end of the season to sign the 23-year-old, but the Rome-based paper now reports that Napoli have raised the price tag for their star striker.
