Osimhen sacks agent who threatens to sue

In the continuing transfer saga concerning Victor Osimhen, the Lille striker has replaced his agent after the first one allegedly tried to work out bonuses for himself and not the player.

The sacked agent has now threatened to drag Osimhen to court, according to Football Italia.

Football Italia sources close to Osimhen confirmed that it was on account of this issue that the striker turned down Napoli last week.

However, that has since been sorted out with the arrival of a new agent.

Now those same sources confirm – as is also reported by RAI Sport and CalcioNapoli24 – that the previous agent was trying to negotiate extra bonuses for himself rather than focusing on the best deal for the player.

The agent will be sacked and is now threatening to sue Osimhen.

Radio Punto Nuovo also reported that Osimhen has joined the negotiations on Lille President Gerard Lopez’s yacht off the coast of Sardinia.

By all accounts, he could have his medical with Napoli on Thursday.
