Newcastle United submitted an £84m bid in January in an attempt to sign Napoli superstar Victor Osimhen, according to an Italian journalist.Corriere dello Sport journalist Antonio Giordano said that Eddie Howe’s side made a huge offer to the Nigerian during the winter transfer window.Giordano believes that the 23-year-old has no interest in coming to Tyneside and not participating in the Champions League next season.Photo by Matteo Ciambelli/DeFodi Images via Getty Images“Osimhen is followed by half the world, and it is true that Newcastle showed €100m (£84m) in January, but in my opinion, if the English club returns, the Nigerian will not go,” Giordano said during Canale 8’s Ne Parliamo il Martedì, relayed by Tutto Napoli.HITC’s New Kid On The Block – ERIC TV“But then it is also necessary to check what Newcastle will do, what team they will do, what coach they will take on and what contractual offer they will present.”With seven Serie A games to go, Napoli who sit second in the table are currently engulfed in a three-horse title race for the Scudetto with both the Milan clubs.Luciano Spalletti’s side look nailed on to qualify for next season’s Champions League and it’s going to have to take a huge bid to lure Osimhen away from Naples.Photo by Andrea Staccioli/Insidefoto/LightRocket via Getty ImagesCorriere dello Sport suggested Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis wants as much as €120m after ignoring a €100m bid for the former Lille star in the last window.Going off Giordano’s comments it seems that offer came from PIFs Magpies.Howe’s Newcastle, led by the riches of the Saudi-led consortium, are only in the early stages of the club’s ambitious project.Osimhen has 25 goals from 55 matches since joining the Italian giants from reigning Ligue 1 champions Lille in September 2020.Dubbed as being “better” than Juventus star Dusan Vlahovic by Serie A legend Alessandro Altobelli, it seems like Victor Osimhen won’t be making the move to St James’ Park anytime soon.
