Saudi Pro League Side, Al-Ahli Set To Trigger The Release Clause Of Victor Osimhen At Napoli


Saudi Pro League giants Al-Ahli are ready to trigger the release clause of Napoli’s goal poacher Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen is expected to leave Naples this summer following a turbulent season with the Italian side.

The Lagos-born forward had an issue with former boss Rudi Garcia after he put up a petulant display when he was substituted in a league game against Bologna on May 11, 2024.

During the game, Osimhen was substituted in the 86th minute for Giovanni Simeone, having missed a penalty in the 72nd minute which ultimately had a hand in the game ending 0-0.

Following the encounter, Napoli’s TikTok account made a post intended to mock the Nigerian and he didn’t take it in good light.

Despite his not-too-convincing 2023-2024 season, Victor Osimhen remains a highly sought-after striker, with many keen on securing his services.

The Nigeria international has been linked with several clubs this summer, including; Arsenal, Chelsea, Paris Saint Germain, and recently Al-Ahli.

Al-Ahli Are Ready To Activate The Release Clause Of Victor Osimhen

Reports indicate that Osimhen’s release clause has been pegged at €120 million and Al-Ahli are willing to activate it to secure the attacker’s signature.

Victor Osimhen has in the past been linked with Saudi Pro League giants Al Hilal, with the Saudi Arabian side tabling about €140 million to get his services.

Osimhen rejected their advances and he revealed in November 2023 the reason why he opted not to move to the Asian side.

The 25-year-old indicated that he refused to join Al Hilal because he had to “make a decision that is good for my career.”

It is uncertain if he has had a change of heart, seeing the number of stars that are plying their trade in the country.

Saudi Arabian sides bombarded the European continent majorly in 2023, acquiring top stars including; Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Karim Benzema, and N’golo Kante.

The Pro League is becoming very competitive and more stars are said to be willing to move to the division if an offer is presented before them.

Paris Saint Germain Interested In Signing Victor Osimhen

Meanwhile, the interest of PSG apparently is coming to the fore because of the departure of Kylian Mbappe.

Paris Saint Germain are searching for a lethal attacker to replace Mbappe, whose move to Real Madrid was confirmed in the early stages of June 2024.

Victor Osimhen understands French football having in the past represented Lille and rightly excelled in the attacking department.

The Nigerian is now a more improved player and he is considered to be one of the best strikers in football currently.

Osimhen is known for his remarkable finishing, pace, strength, and incredible athleticism.
