Transfer : Osimhen back in France to bid farewell to teammates after passing Napoli medical

Italian club Napoli could announce the signing of Victor Osimhen on Wednesday if everything go according to plans.

Source close to the player, Oma Akatugba said the player had his medical on Saturday and has since returned to France to say goodbye to his Lille teammates ahead of the move.

Oma said the deal could become official in the next two days as Osimhen's agent and Napoli are almost through with the negotiations on his image right which has stalled the deal at a point.

The 21 year old Nigeria international is expected to become the most expensive player from the continent of Africa as Napoli are expected to pay Lille €82m for his services and he's also expected to earn €5m annually.

Osimhen reportedly snubbed a last minute interests from Liverpool and Manchester City because he already gave Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis and Coach Genaro Gattuso his words.

Osimhen who was named best African player in French league last month scored 18 goals in 30 games for Lille last season.

It's a definitely a good time for the young footballer who endured alo of hardship on the streets of Lagos when he was growing up.

Nigeria is a country with so many poor people. Talking about how such a young lad from a poor background has reached the top will only inspire many who are currently battling to feed to keep dreaming that they can make it big doing the right things like victor Osimhen.

Congratulations to Victor Osimhen
