Napoli sporting director Mauro Meluso has ruled out the sale of Victor Osimhen or any other player in the club during the January transfer window.
Osimhen continues to be linked with a move away from the current Serie A champions.
Reports of his exit gathered pace after a TikTok video from Napoli’s account appeared to be mocking him over a penalty in September.
Clubs like Premier League heavyweights Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea and also Bayern Munich have been linked to the Super Eagles striker.
Speaking to Sport Mediaset via TuttoNapoli, Meluso dismissed reports that Osimhen or any of the club’s star players will be sold in the winter transfer.
“Absolutely not, the squad is very large and leaves us calm. Everything can be improved, these are discussions we will have later. We will certainly get together to understand how and whether to intervene.”
Meluso praised Napoli’s current squad depth, describing it as competitive.
“The Napoli squad is highly competitive, I wouldn’t forget Simeone either and he is an added value. It’s a squad we have a lot of confidence in, and the coach manages to keep concentration high, we’re happy about this and everyone must feel like they’re the starters.”
Napoli are fourth in the Serie A table, five points behind league leaders Inter, and sit tied second in their Champions League group after a win over Braga and a loss to Real Madrid.
Osimhen is currently on the sideline after suffering a hamstring injury during the international break.
He picked up the injury in the international friendly game between Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.
He has scored six goals in eight league games for Napoli so far this season.
