Victor Osimhen Signs For Napoli, Becomes Nigeria’s Most Expensive Player

Nigerian international striker, Victor Osimhen on Friday, July 31, 2020 completed a big-money move from Lille to Napoli, making him officially become Nigeria’s most expensive player

The striker who scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for the French club in the 2019-20 season, moves to Naples in a five-year deal worth €50 million (£45m/$59m).

 

The Serie A side announced the signing in a statement via its website and Twitter page on Friday, saying: ‘SSC Napoli are delighted to announce the signing of Victor Osimhen from Lille on a permanent transfer.‘

 

The big-money move also makes Osimhen the most expensive signing in Napoli’s history, a record that was set last summer by Hirving Lozano when he signed from PSV Eindhoven for €38m plus bonuses.

 

He is also expected to be handed the No.9 jersey and will be presented to the media in Naples after his summer vacation.

The happy Footballer wrote on his Twitter page:

‘Can’t wait to put on this iconic jersey,thank, you for the warm welcome.’
