“Later this week he’ll drop his concerns and confirm his decision, whether he decides to accept Napoli’s offer or not.”
“We’re waiting. [His decision] may come not long after today. The coach made him feel wanted. He believes a lot in [Osimhen’s] ability and what he can do,” Okolo said.”
“Victor told me there was an agreement on everything but that there was still a couple more things to iron out before the final decision: the announcement should be made by tomorrow.”
