Capello warns Napoli president ADL: I'm hearing Osimhen rumours

Former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello has warned Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis over Victor Osimhen.

Capello admits he heard some transfer rumours around the striker when in Dubai for the Globe Soccer Awards.

He told TMW: "(Didier) Drogba was also awarded... The case in point is that, even if he had more technique and quality.

"But Osimhen is young, he can improve. (Rafael) Leao has more class, but Osimhen is a centre-forward, one who scores, has the qualities to be a crack.

"I heard rumours here in Dubai, De Laurentiis needs to straighten the antennas. Here I know several... Real Madrid? I don't do names, not even under torture."
