Osimhen: 'No deal with Napoli'

Lille forward Victor Osimhen has denied ‘fake news’ reports that he agreed a five-year contract with Napoli. ‘When it’s time, you’ll hear from me directly.’

The striker has been valued at €50m and is expected to move on this summer after just one season in Lille.

Napoli are currently the favourites, but face strong competition from Liverpool, so Osimhen was upset to see reports in Nigeria and France of a five-year deal already agreed with the Partenopei.

“A lot of fake news about me agreeing a deal with Napoli is sickening for real,” he told

“I’m surprised at the journalists, that say they are professionals. I find it amazing. Please disregard any fake news, when it’s time for my transfer, you’ll hear from me directly.”
