Osimhen reports for pre-season training at Napoli amid uncertainty over his future

According to a report from Sky Sport Italia, Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has resumed for Napoli pre-season preparation amid uncertainty regarding his future.

The 25-year-old was one of the players to have resumed for the start of the Parthenopeans preseason which is taking place at Castel Volturno, Italy, under the supervision of new manager, Antonio Conte.

Osimhen's future is hanging in the balance as it is not looking likely that he is going to get a move to the Premier League which is his preferred destination.

With a release clause worth €130m, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, which are the English clubs to have been linked with him, find his valuation excessive and are exploring alternatives.

Manchester United are on the verge of concluding a deal for cap-tied Joshua Zirkzee, Chelsea are focusing on younger forwards like Spanish-Nigerian striker Samu Omorodion while Arsenal have also been linked with Viktor Gyökeres.

While there is a possibility that either Al-Ahli or Al-Hilal pay his release clause and pay him huge wages, the reigning African Footballer of the Year doesn't fancy a move to the Saudi Pro-League yet. 

With this impasse over his future, Conte will be working with the Nigeria international until a solution emerges and if there is none, he will be expected to play a major part for Napoli next season.
