Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has reportedly agreed to a summer move to Italian Serie A side, Napoli, from French side Lille.
Reports 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.
“There are multiple offers,’ Lopez told Sportsmail.
‘We turned down one English and one Spanish offer this January transfer window.
‘There is a wide array [this summer] and I wouldn’t want to give the names of the clubs who are bidding but what I can tell you is that there are multiple [offers]. There are three championships that have clubs that have bid for him.’ Lopez said.
Osimhen joined Lille from Charleroi in a ten million pounds deal last summer to sign the player last season as a replacement for Ivorian international Nikolas Pepe who departed from Arsenal for 72 million pounds.
Osimhen enjoyed impressive debut season for the Christopher Galtier’s men, scoring 18 goals in 30 appearances and was named Club’s player of the season.
