Osimhen signed £112m transfer agreement, Brentford demand Nketiah-Ivan Toney £50m swap deal, Real Madrid man to join Arsenal next week

The agreement is near for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen’s contract extension, according to the Italian daily Rai (via CalcioNapoli24). Aurelio de Laurentiis, the CEO of Napoli, reportedly met with the player’s agent Roberto Calenda earlier this week to discuss the conditions of a new deal. The meeting was considered to be productive.

According to reports, the 23-year-old’s new contract has a €130 million (£112 million) “gentleman’s agreement” clause to guarantee a smooth exit from the current Serie A champions. According to the source, Arsenal has already made contact with Calendo.
