Victor Obinna's agent claims his client would relish the opportunity to join Napoli this summer.

The Nigeria international is currently taking in a season-long loan spell at West Ham, after falling out of favour at Inter Milan.

The 24-year-old has endured mixed fortunes during his time with the Hammers, with a disappointing Premier League campaign for the club making it difficult for him to shine.

He is, however, still highly regarded in Italy and is expecting to return to Serie A at the end of the season.

With his contract at Inter set to expire, he will be available as a free agent and is likely to have plenty of options to consider.

One of those could be a move to Napoli, with the club having held a long-standing interest in his services.


"Obinna hopes to come to Napoli, which is a place he has always liked," Valentino Nerbini told Radio Crc.

"A few years ago, when Napoli's sporting director was [Pierpaolo] Marino, there was a deal in place to take him to Napoli for 5-6million euros, but then the deal broke down over problems relating to image rights.

"Now that Obinna could arrive on a free transfer, Napoli would be crazy not to take him.

"The dream is to come to Napoli, a club who are playing beautiful football at the moment.

"Obinna's best performances this season have come in the cups, for example his display against Manchester United, but he is now paying the price of West Ham's troubles."
