Reports: Osimhen set for Napoli

Speculation is intensifying this morning that Lille forward Victor Osimhen has agreed to join Napoli.

For several weeks, Osimhen has been considered Napoli’s first choice to replace Arkadiusz Milik in their attack.

Now, Sky Sport Italia and Radio Marte report the Nigerian and his agent are travelling to Naples today.

As well as visiting the city, they are expected to hold face-to-face talks with Napoli officials at the club’s base in Castel Volturno.

Sportitalia reports personal terms should not be an issue as the 21-year-old has ‘said yes for weeks’ to joining the Partenopei.

On the other hand, one unnamed source has warned to Football Italia that he is ‘against’ the idea of joining the Coppa Italia winners and Lille are forcing him to accept a move.

The French side were reported to be demanding €80m for his services, but the coronavirus pandemic makes such an outlay unlikely.
