According to Sky Sport, Napoli have confirmed the signing of Victor Osimhen from Lille, putting an end to Premier League move for the Nigerian.

Victor Osimhen delighted in a fine debut season with Lille in Ligue 1, and has immediately earned the next move in his career.

The 21-year-old striker scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for the French side. He scored against Chelsea in the Champions League, and there were rumours that it would not be his last goal against an English side.

Reports recommended Victor Osimhen was a target for the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

In any case, Napoli had all the earmarks of being the main competitors from the start, and now they have their man.

In spite of cases that Tottenham Hotspur were attempting to hijack the deal, Napoli have signed Victor Osimhen on a five-year contract. The fee is purportedly in the area of €60m.
