Osimhen recently completed switch from Lille to Napoli in a deal that could eventually sum up to a record €80m, and is already tipped to have an excellent impact at his new Serie A outfit.

The transfer was finally completed on July 31 for €50m in cash, €10m in bonuses plus ownership of goalkeeper, Orestis Karnezis and three youth team players of the Partenopei.
