Details emerge over Osimhen's Napoli move

Napoli are expected to announce the deal to sign Victor Osimhen from Lille, with Italian sources assuring it’s €50m plus bonuses and Orestis Karnezis.

You can read Vilizar Yakimov's blog on what Osimhen can bring to the Stadio San Paolo.

The €81m figure given by the media in France probably includes the salary from his five-year contract as well, but does not represent the kind of sum Napoli would pay for a 21-year-old forward.

Multiple Italian sources, including Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà and Sky Sport Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio, all point to the same fee.

It is €50m plus bonuses and goalkeeper Karnezis making the move to Lille in exchange for Osimhen.

The Nigeria international already had his medical in Rome over a week ago, then signed the contracts, but the announcement was delayed until the final details with his agent could be whittled down.

This is reportedly due to commissions and the payment schedule rather than any issues with the player or club.

An announcement is expected either today or tomorrow.
