Napoli finally confirm Osimhen signing

After weeks of back and forth, Napoli have finally confirmed the signing of Nigerian international, Victor Osimhen, from Lille.

Osimhen grabbed the headline with his breathtaking maiden season in France where he scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for Lille

It is reported that Osimhen’s move to Napoli is worth around €50 million (£45m/$59m).

Before finally pitching his tent with Napoli, Arsenal and Liverpool among many other teams were also linked with the 21-year old.

Starting out with the Nigeria U17 before playing his way into to the Super Eagles, Osimhen’s career abroad began in 2017 with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, before moving to Charleroi in Belgium, initially on loan and then in a permanent transfer.

He hugely impressed in Belgium with 36 goals in 37 appearances, earning him a €14m (£12.5m/$16.5m) move to Ligue 1, where his impressive scoring form continued.

Osimhen will spearhead Napoli’s attack next season, as they look to return to the Champions League having missed out this year
