Napoli are making a bid for the Serie A title this season and will be banking on Osimhen producing the goods in the coming months.

And according to Italian daily Corriere dello Sport, Newcastle tried their luck with a big offer for Osimhen in the January window, offering Napoli a fee of €100m.



However, Napoli knocked back Newcastle’s proposal as they consider Osimhen to be a key player and were not keen on losing his services.
