Napoli beat Arsenal and Chelsea to signing of Osimhen from Lille in £74m deal

The Serie A side fended off competition from Arsenal and Chelsea to sign the Nigeria international.

Osimhen was in demand after he scored 13 goals in 27 Ligue 1 appearances for Lille this season.

Napoli, who confirmed the signing on their official website, will finish in seventh place in Serie A, and will be involved in the Europa League next season.

Osimhen commenced his senior career at Wolfsburg and was sent out on loan to Charleroi, who then activated their option to sign him permanently prior to sanctioning a transfer to Lille last year.
The 21 year old has scored four goals in nine appearances for Nigeria.

Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik has been linked with a move to Juventus, while there have been suggestions that Lille could replace Omishen with Rangers' Alfredo Morelos, although such a deal has yet to materialise.

74 million is way too much, even tho he can be really good in some matches he has not proved himself as concistent. That is the same reason why barca should not sign lautoro. They both are fantastic when they play at their best but they cant show it match in match out

A perfect move!
The pressure to perform in England is 'over-humongous'.

Personally I don't like the idea of him going to Napoli, De Laurentiis is a very difficult man to negotiate with, only Daniel levy drives a harder bargain. If Osimhen becomes a success there (I have a strong feeling that he will),it will be hard for him to move to a bigger side.

You are kidding right, Joelinton was signed by Newcastle for 40m, what has he done? What about Wan Bissaka? Messi goes missing in some matches and he has 6 balon dors, so what's your point

Edo under the old Bendel used to be known as a sports power house. I recall how they used to produce Olympic boxers and sprinters from the Sports village at Afuze.

Raw unharnessed talents abound, there used to be a healthy competition between 2 sports administrators Brown Ebewele and a guy in Delta when the state was carved up into Edo and Delta over who will produce the best sportsmen and women.
The National sports festival used to be argument about who gets the most medals between Edo and Delta while other states will be looking in amazement.

We need more Kamoru Usman and Osimhen from the old Bendel, let the state governments invest more on sports, many of those ladies leaving through dangerous means could have Blessing Okagbare our current best female sprinter with little investment

Bros stop looking down on this guy.
He has shown quality and worth the amount.
My only issue is that he went to the wrong club where poor quality play from others can downgrade his abilities.
The guy will prove himself and does not need all these negative comments.

Besides, is it ur money they used to buy him?

Victor osimhen is a very good player but £74m pounds which is close to 40billion naira when converted to Nigeria currency is way too much for him, I only hope he will not be Napoli's version of Alexis Sanchez
