Napoli close on Osimhen

There are growing reports in France and Italy that Napoli have already agreed personal terms with 21-year-old Lille striker Victor Osimhen.

Footmercato, Telefoot and Sport Mediaset claim Osimhen has made Napoli his primary objective and worked out personal terms with director of sport Cristiano Giuntoli.

Although LOSC are asking for €80m, similar to the Nicolas Pepe sale a year before, the more realistic price-tag is €55m.

The Nigeria international was snapped up from Charleroi last summer for €12m and made a big impact in France.

He scored 18 goals with six assists in 38 competitive games for Lille.

Osimhen can play as a centre-forward, but also on either side of a trident attack.
