Talks between Napoli and Lille have remained protracted since both parties enter negotiation but it appears all's that is left for the player to cross the Ts and dot the Is to secure the move.
According transfer market expert and sport journalist Nicolo Schira, the deal for Osimhen is done and he will put pen to paper on a five year deal tomorrow.
The forward has been linked with a number of European clubs following his eye-catching performances for Christophe Galtier’s men in the 2019-20 season.
He joined Lille only last season but got his stock up after scoring 13 goals in 27 games. He is linked with a move to a plethora of clubs but Napoli appear to have won the race to sign him in an €81 million move.
Last summer the French outfit sold Ivory Coast international Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal for £72 million but Osimhen’s deal could be the best ever for the Mastiffs, hence, he'd also become the most expensive Nigerian player in history.
