Al Hilal has made an offer worth €140m (£120.3m) to Napoli for striker Victor Osimhen, with wages on offer in the region of £1m per week.
The Saudi Pro League club has already had a bid of €300m (£259m) for Paris St-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe accepted this summer.
Although the player declined to meet with them and they also tried to sign Lionel Messi before he moved to Inter Miami in the United States of America.
It is thought Napoli would want more than €150m (£128.8m) to even consider selling a player who finished top of the Serie A goalscoring chart last season as they won the league title.
Osimhen, aged 24, was a transfer target for Manchester United this summer, with talks over a new contract with Napoli stalling.

Reports in Italy suggest that a meeting between Napoli and Osimhen’s agent failed to find a resolution on an extension to his deal, which runs until the summer of 2025.
Last month, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis was asked about the progress of a new contract for Osimhen. He said: “We have a basic agreement on a two-year extension, but [we are] willing to consider an offer we could not refuse.”
