Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Lille striker Victor Osimhen is eager to move to Napoli.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport revealed that the 21-year-old will put pen to paper for a five year deal with Gennaro Gattuso’s side after agreeing four million euros ( over 1.7 billion naira) annual salary apart from bonuses.
It has now appeared that the Naples outfit has won the race for the striker who has been tipped to join either Tottenham or Liverpool in the English Premier League.
Lille president Gerard Lopez confirmed a few days ago that the club received several offers, but will only do business for the right money.
Gazzetta dello Sport says the Nigeria international has told Lille directors he wishes to join Napoli this summer.
Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis is prepared to offer €55m to bring Osimhen to Naples.
However, any move is likely to hinge on ADL finding a buyer for Arek Milik.
Osimhen is also interesting Chelsea and Liverpool, but in Italy they’re insisting he wants to move to Napoli.
