This time, we are there. After protracted negotiations that have taken place for more than six weeks, today Napoli is expected to make the signing of Nigerian international striker Victor Osimhen official, who joins from Lille for €60 million-plus bonuses that could take the deal to €81 million.
This afternoon, the two clubs signed the final relevant documents, with Osimhen having already passed a medical with the Serie A club in Rome last weekend.

Osimhen will wear jersey no nine, though the new club is yet to make the official announcement.
With this move, Osimhen will become Nigeria’s most expensive player and Africa’s costliest player.
The forward, who will have spent just 12 months with Les Dogues, joins on a five-year contract, with the option to extend that deal by a further sixth year.
