REVEALED: Napoli signing Osimhen spoke to Solskjaer, Klopp

Victor Osimhen turned down Liverpool and Manchester United to sign for Napoli yesterday, it has been revealed.

Former Lille striker Osimhen was unveiled as a Napoli yesterday following a £45million deal which has rumbled on for weeks. Four players from Napoli are also moving to France in exchange.

L'Equipe says Osimhen held conversations with both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jurgen Klopp.

Manchester United manager Solskjaer is on the lookout for a new forward and was keen to talk with the forward.

Osimhen changed his agent shortly after finding an initial agreement with Napoli.

It was something that nearly put the deal in jeopardy with his new agent keen to seal his client a move to the Premier League.

That's where he contacted Manchester United and Liverpool's Klopp but ultimately Osimhen was set on joining Napoli.
