Napoli signed Osimhen from Lille in a €80million deal after the Italian side fended off competition from the pair of Arsenal and Chelsea to land the Nigerian international.
The 21-year-old has been in stellar form for the Ligue 1 side with the forward scoring 13 goals in 27 appearances as Lille finished the 2019-20 season in fourth place.
Osimhen only signed for the French Ligue 1 club last year from Sporting Charleroi after impressing on loan at the Belgian First Division A side during the 2018-19 season.
Lille tweeted: "We'd like to extend our heartfelt thanks to @victorosimhen9 and wish this Super Eagle 🇳🇬 the very best of #LOSC luck in his new adventure with @en_sscnapoli.
"Get ready, #SerieA. Thanks for the memories, @victorosimhen9." Osimhen himself later on posted on his verified Twitter handle: "Family forever. Mom and dad are proud for sure."
