Victor Osimhen

The anticipation for the upcoming Serie A season has reached its peak as the league officially released the opening fixtures. Matches are set to kick off on August 20th, and football fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the start of the new season.

All eyes will be on Napoli, the reigning Scudetto champions, as they begin their mission to defend the title they won with remarkable finesse back in May. One of the key factors in their success was the outstanding performance of Victor Osimhen, who emerged as the league’s top scorer.

Negotiations for Osimhen’s contract renewal with Napoli are currently underway, and if all goes well, he could be available for their first match away to newly-promoted Frosinone. Frosinone, who claimed the Serie B championship last season, will face a daunting task in stopping Osimhen, who netted an impressive 26 league goals.

Under the guidance of Rudi Garcia, who took over from Luciano Spalletti, Napoli is considered strong contenders for the Serie A title. Their chances will undoubtedly be boosted if they can convince Osimhen to remain in Naples.

AC Milan is also making moves in the transfer market, with the club inching closer to securing the services of Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal. If the deal goes through, Chukwueze could make his league debut against Bologna, adding further intrigue to Milan’s opening fixture.
