Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen may be working under a new manager at Napoli next season as Luciano Spalletti is set to take a break.
Spalletti led the Naples club to their first Serie A title in 33 years, but has confirmed he would be needing a rest.
“I need to take some time to rest because I’m pretty tired,” he said.
“I don’t know if you can call it a year’s sabbatical but I won’t be working. I won’t be coaching Napoli or any other team.”

64-year-old Spalletti, who took over in July 2021, had a year left on his deal.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis said he would “respect” the decision.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Rai, De Laurentiis said: “He’s a free man, he’s given us something and I thank him, it’s right that he does what he wants.”
Napoli were held to a 2-2 draw by Bologna on Sunday, and they play their final match of the season at home to Sampdoria next Sunday.
