Italian giants, Napoli have confirmed the signing of Nigerian international striker Victor Osimhen from Lille in a $80million deal.
The Serie A side won the race for the brilliant player ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea to have him.
Osimhen was in demand after he scored 13 goals in 27 Ligue 1 appearances for Lille this season.
Napoli, who confirmed the signing on their official website, will finish in seventh place in Serie A, and will be involved in the Europa League next season.
Osimhen commenced his senior career at Wolfsburg and was sent out on loan to Charleroi, who then activated their option to sign him permanently prior to sanctioning a transfer to Lille last year.
The 21 year old has scored four goals in nine appearances for Nigeria.
