TRANSFERS Napoli open to replacing Osimhen with 'free agent' Belotti

Italian side Napoli might be preparing for life after Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen with interest in Italian striker Andrea Belotti having surfaced again.
Osimhen has been linked to several Premier League clubs with Mikel Arteta's Arsenal rumoured to be the frontrunners for the 23-year-old's signature.

Belotti, on the other hand, is set to be a free agent soon as he has entered the last months of his contract with Torino which expires in June 2022.

Anything can happen - Napoli Sporting Director
In an interview with TuttoMercatoWEB, Napoli Sporting Director Cristiano Giuntoli stated that the Italian club are not looking to sign Belotti at the moment since they have enough cover in the attacking positions such as Osimhen, Dries Mertens, and Andrea Petagna

However, Giuntoli noted that many things could change in two months, stressing that signing Belotti would be an 'opportunity for everyone' because he is a great player

Giuntoli said: "We have Osimhen, Petagna and Mertens, we are not thinking about doing other things in attack. Then in two months many things can change.

“It will be an opportunity for everyone because Belotti is a great player but at the moment, that is not what we are thinking.”

Napoli want €120m for Victor Osimhen
Interested clubs such as Arsenal and Newcastle United are expected to make their move for Osimhen during the summer transfer window.

Osimhen has been in red hot form for Napoli this season, leading their Serie A title charge with 12 goals and four (4) assists in 21 league appearances so far.

The Super Eagles striker also won the Serie A Player of the Month Award for March for scoring consecutive braces against Hellas Verona and Udinese to help Napoli to an unbeaten month.

Osimhen will hope to continue his run of five (5) goals in three matches when Napoli welcome AS Roma to the Diego Maradona Stadium in Naples on Monday, April 18
