Napoli Close In On Osimhen Transfer

Serie A club Napoli are closing in on a deal to sign Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen from Ligue 1 side Lille this summer, reports Completesports.com.

Napoli according to transfer market expert Nicolo Schira are in advanced talks with Osimhen and are ready to offer the young forward a five-year contract.

The Partenopei’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis is also working hard to reach an agreement with Lille to finalise the move.

Osimhen is seen by the club as a capable replacement for Poland striker Arkadiusz Milik who has been linked with a move to Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 21-year-old linked up with Lille from Belgian Pro League club Sporting Charleroi last summer.
