Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen is 90% set to join Serie A club Napoli on a long-term deal, according to reports.
The 21-year-old enjoyed a fantastic 2019/2020 season, scoring 18 goals with six assists in 38 games for Lille in all competitions. This spectacular form put him in the shopping window for top European teams but his potential move to Italy has been well documented.
“If Victor wants to go to Naples?” Absolutely yes, he is already 90% a player from Naples. He has already been there twice, he was struck by the city, by the club’s project, by all that Naples can offer him. ” Nigerian journalist Oma Akatugba told Radio Punto Nuovo.
The Nigerian has already met Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis and manager Gennaro Gattuso and satisfied with life in Naples with reports of his medicals already in the media but no official announcements by the club.
Osimhen joined Lille for €12m from Belgian side Charleroi last summer and finished as topscorer before the abrupt end to Ligue 1 due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
