After a period of reflection, Victor Osimhen, revelation of last season in Ligue 1 with Lille, choose his next club.
One of the big soap operas of the summer in Ligue 1 is already coming to an end. According to information from L’Équipe, Victor Osimhen (21) choose Napoli. The Nigerian was won over by the Partenopei’s seduction operation, which began a few weeks ago. The Super Eagle, however, wanted to allow time for reflection.
The 13-goal man in 27 Ligue 1 games had seen Inter Milan and Liverpool come in the news in the meantime. Two attractive proposals. Only, the former resident of Wolfsburg and Charleroi preferred to join a stable which ardently desired it and which intends to make it the spearhead of his attack.
He was also won over by his discussions with his future president Aurelio De Laurentiis and his future coach Gennaro Gattuso. The latter was even ready to lower his salary to allow his management to complete the operation. A strong choice that proved to the Lagos native how much he was wanted. His salary, which will be 6 to 7 times higher than that which he receives at LOSC, also weighed.
The operation could be formalized by Thursday, with a medical visit expected in the coming hours. It remains only for the two clubs to agree. The Team claims that the Mastiffs ask for € 81 million. A record amount for them, as for the Transalpines.
