Napoli complete Osimhen signing

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Napoli have completed the signing of Victor Osimhen from Lille OSC.

Apparently, the two clubs have done all the work after agreeing on a €50 million base fee for the transfer, with add-ons to follow on top of that amount. The forward has already signed a contract with the Serie A side, which makes him their player for the next five years. The official confirmation from the clubs is, however, yet to come.

Primarily a centre-forward, the 21-year-old is fully capable of operating as a wide forward on either side, and he scored 18 goals with six assists on top in 38 appearances in all competitions this season for Lille. His fine performances had put a number of top clubs across Europe on the list of potential suitors, but Napoli seem to have been the most decisive of them all. Given his young age and undoubted talent, he is very likely to provide a significant return on their investment.
