Serie A club Napoli are closing in on a deal to sign Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen from Ligue 1 side Lille this summer.
Napoli according to transfer market expert Nicolo Schira are in advanced talks with Osimhen and are ready to offer the young forward a five-year contract.
The Partenopei’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis is also working hard to reach an agreement with Lille to finalise the move.
Osimhen is seen by the club as a capable replacement for Poland striker Arkadiusz Milik who has been linked with a move to Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.
The 21-year-old linked up with Lille from Belgian Pro League club Sporting Charleroi last summer.
He scored 18 goals and provided six assists in 38 games across all competitions for Lille during the 2019/2020 campaign.
Osimhen was also voted the club’s player of the year.
The former Wolfsburg striker was on Monday named the Best African Player In Ligue 1 for year 2020.
