Victor Osimhen’s former agent, Franco Lovino of Star Factory, has denied any wrongdoing during negotiations of the player’s transfer to Napoli.
It would be recalled that the 21-year – old was advised by his club Lille to change his agent after talks between the French club and Napoli continued to drag on.
It was also reported that Osimhen decided to part ways with Franco Iovino because he was demanding for outrageous amount as commission which could possibly jeopardize the transfer.
Iovino has denied the claims and said Lille complicated the negotiations and added that the club shut because of the relationship that exist between the presidents of the Serie A and Ligue 1 clubs.
“It was not clear what happened. Perhaps something fishy went down, probably between the Presidents of Lille and Napoli,” Iovino told Radio Punto Nuovo, according to Football Italia.
“The negotiations didn’t slow down because of Star Factory but because the player kept hesitating. William D’Avila is a home agent in Lille. The club will surely have advised Osimhen to leave us and go with him.
He also claimed that Lille possibly promised the player more money should he accept to join Napoli.
“They will certainly have promised him money. Lille for some reason wanted to only sell to Napoli because there’s an excellent relationship between the Presidents.
“At the moment, my company doesn’t need to look itself in the mirror, the two clubs do,” he said.
The deal is now expected to be made official on Friday.
