Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen could become the highest earning African footbaler ever, as Al-Hilal returned with a second bid to lure him away from Napoli, according to reports.

Just a few days ago, the Saudi Pro League side made an audacious offer of €130 million to Napoli for Osimhen. However, the Serie A champions promptly rejected the bid, asserting that it fell far short of their valuation of the Nigerian import, which stands at a staggering €200 million.

Undeterred by the initial setback, Al-Hilal has come back with a new offer of €140 million, along with an enticing salary package for the talented striker. The proposed salary of €1 million per month, amounting to a jaw-dropping €52 million annually, would make Osimhen the highest-paid African footballer in history, surpassing the current record held by Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, who earns €370,000 per week.

Despite the allure of Al-Hilal’s proposal, Napoli is expected to stand firm and reject the latest bid. The Serie A giants have expressed their strong desire to keep Osimhen for at least another year, considering his pivotal role in helping the team secure the Scudetto title last season, ending a 33-year wait.

While Osimhen’s contract with Napoli extends until 2025, discussions about a potential two-year extension are ongoing. The 24-year-old striker has openly voiced his ambition to achieve further success in European football, and there are indications that his ultimate destination, in the long run, could be the prestigious English Premier League.

As the negotiations continue, the football world eagerly awaits the outcome of Al-Hilal’s persistent pursuit of Victor Osimhen and the prospect of witnessing the young Nigerian striker’s next chapter in what promises to be a captivating footballing journey.
