Osimhen and Folorunsho join Napoli for the pre-season
Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen and his compatriot Michael Folorunsho joined the Napoli squad for the 2022/23 pre-season on Friday.
The Napoli players arrived at the Rosatti Hotel in Dimaro, Italy.
Osimhen arrives looking to build on an impressive 2021/22 season which saw him register 18 goals and six assists in all competitions for Partonopei last term.
The 23-year-old has been linked with an exit from Napoli with interest from Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern and Newcastle.
Newcastle have the funds to sign, but Osimhen is thought to want to switch to a club that offers Champions League football.
Folorunsho, however, returned to Napoli after playing on loan at Pordenone and Reggiana last season and enjoyed a good loan spell.
The 24-year-old midfielder joined Napoli in 2019 but has yet to make a single appearance for the club in three years.
The team will undergo its first training session of the pre-season on Saturday (today) morning.
