Agent responds to Man Utd, Arsenal interest in Napoli striker Osimhen

The agent of Victor Osimhen has rubbished claims the Nigeria striker is looking to leave Napoli.

Manchester United and Arsenal have been strongly linked with the 23-year-old in recent weeks.

However, agent Roberto Calenda has told Radio Marte that Osimhen is focused on winning the Scudetto with Luciano Spalletti's side.

"There are no problems. Victor has already proved his close bond with this club," Calenda said, via Football Italia.

"I don't want to waste time talking about this, the situation is ridiculous. Just move on and talk about football.

"Osimhen is a young striker and with the right tips, his development is natural. Luciano Spalletti improves the players he works with.

"Everyone is happy about how things are going, Napoli are a precise choice for the striker's development, as a man and as a footballer."

"Osimhen is focused on the pitch, he wants to win and he is showing the right commitment. He plays for a strong team and journalists need to fill the papers' pages.

"Even somebody who knows nothing about football would name Osimhen among the top strikers. He is a Napoli player and he will face seven finals now. The focus is all on the current campaign."
