Victor Osimhen will not be moving to Liverpool, according to Andrea D’Amico, an Italian agent and partner of the player’s new intermediary William D’Avila.
According to D’Amico, a move to Napoli will profit the Nigerian striker better.
Liverpool are believed to be among the Premier League clubs reportedly making a last-ditch attempt to snatch Osimhen.
However, D’Amico who is involved in negotiations with Napoli has played down talks of a transfer to England.
When asked if Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso liked Osimhen, he told Football Italia: “Very much, he likes all good players. The Giuntoli-Gattuso axis is making Napoli stronger and stronger.
“The right step for the attacker (Osimhen) is Napoli, not Liverpool”.
The Osimhen transfer saga has dragged on all through July, as the player had to change his agent.
