Napoli may part with Osimhen after the season, yet they are considering a different Super Eagles player to fill his spot.

Former Serie A winners Napoli might consider acquiring Super Eagles forward Victor Boniface should Victor Osimhen depart this summer. Napoli faces the possibility of losing Osimhen due to interest from major European clubs, spurred by his stellar performances over the past three seasons.

Clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly monitoring Osimhen, aiming to secure his services in the upcoming transfer window, with his departure appearing probable.

Should Osimhen exit, Napoli would receive a significant transfer fee, as the 25-year-old is currently valued at approximately €120 million. This would necessitate a substantial investment in a new forward to replace him.

While names such as Joshua Zirkzee, Jonathan David, and Viktor Gyokeres have been floated, no firm agreements have been made.

According to recent reports from Napoli Magazine, Napoli is also exploring the possibility of signing Boniface, who has enjoyed a remarkable first season at Bayer Leverkusen. The 23-year-old has notched 19 goals and ten assists for Die Werkself this campaign, playing a crucial role in their success.

Napoli might have to spend around €50 million to secure Boniface, though Bayer Leverkusen is unlikely to accept such a bid easily, as they aim to keep most of their championship squad intact. However, a bold offer from Napoli could potentially persuade Die Werkself to negotiate.
