Napoli Sign Super Eagles Striker Osimhen

Official: Victor Osimhen joins Napoli in club record transfer

Growing up in the Strikers Academy in Nigeria, Osimhen started his primary footsteps in world football.

Former representative of Victor Osimhen, Jean-Gérard Benoit Czajka, has revealed he took the words of Kalidou Koulibaly and De Laurentis for the Lille hotshot to sign for Napoli.

He joins Napoli in a deal worth a reported €50 million (R1.1 billion), plus add-ons, after the Italian club confirmed the transfer on Friday.

Osimhen has put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Naples-based club.

Osimhen's move to the Gli Azzurri trumps the prize Arsenal paid for Ivory Coast forward, Nicolas Pepe a year ago.

Osimhen scored 18 goals in 32 games for French club Lille, which will make the official announcement of his departure today.

The Serie A side fended off competition from Arsenal and Chelsea to sign the Nigeria global. "He made his full Nigeria debut in June 2017 and so far has 10 caps and four goals to his name".
