Osimhen’s future at Napoli appears uncertain, with a release clause ranging between 120 and 130 million euros. The Nigerian forward has attracted interest from PSG and some Premier League clubs, such as Chelsea and Arsenal.

Additionally, Giovanni Simeone, currently at Napoli, could be considering a change due to his lack of playing time, and rumors suggest he might join Igor Tudor at Lazio next season.

Amid these potential departures, Napoli has set its sights on Retegui as an option to strengthen its attack. However, the club has also shown interest in Lille’s forward, Jonathan David. Recent reports in Italy suggest that Napoli may have already reached a verbal agreement with the Canadian international.

The summer transfer market promises to be exciting for Napoli, with the potential arrivals of Retegui and David as options to boost their attack. The Neapolitan management is working hard to secure the right pieces that will allow them to compete at the highest level next season.
