Serie A club Napoli have announced the signing of Victor Osimhen from Lille on a permanent transfer.
Osimhen penned a five-year contract with the Blues.
The 21-year-old scored 18 goals and recorded six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions for Lille last season.
Osimhen came through the youth ranks at Ultimate Strikers Academy in Lagos and turned professional shortly after his 18th birthday when he joined Wolfsburg.
He spent the 2017/18 season in Germany before moving to Charleroi on loan the following year. He was an instant success in the Jupiler Pro League, netting 20 goals in 36 appearances.
Lille snapped him up in the summer of 2019.
Osimhen helped Nigeria win the U17 World Cup in 2015, when he finished as the tournament’s top scorer with 10 goals.
He made his full Nigeria debut in June 2017 and so far has 10 caps and four goals to his name.
