Nigeria international Victor Osimhen is open to joining Italian club SSC Napoli according to agent Osita Okolo.

African Football reported that, The 21-year-old striker caught the eye with his goalscoring ability during the 2019/20 French Ligue 1 season while playing for OSC Lille.

Osimhen recently dismissed reports indicating that he is close to joining former Serie A champions Napoli.

" I can say that, for now, Osimhen hasn’t agreed anything with Napoli or another club. I can also deny that he dreams of going to the Premier League,” Okolo told Naples-based station, Radio Marte according to Tribal Football.

" I don’t know why [the press] says certain things. Naples is a fantastic city and Napoli are a very good team.

" I’m always honoured whenever I hear these links, but for now there’s no deal in place, even if negotiations with them are ongoing,” he continued.

He wants to play regularly, we’re not going to repeat certain bad experiences from the past.

" The Napoli fans are fantastic, their stadium is beautiful. I can only speak well of Naples and its team.”

Black players have experienced racism in the Serie A over the years, but Okolo believes that Napoli fans are not racist and gave an example of Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

" The real problem with Italy is racism. I know it happens all over Europe, but in Italy it happens a bit more often compared to elsewhere,” he added.

" I know Napoli fans aren’t racist. I have the video of them wearing masks for Koulibaly. Although Napoli fans aren’t racist, many others are. Naples may be the right destination for Victor, but he still must make a decision.”
