In the next few days, Napoli is reportedly attempting to close the deal with Victor Osimhen who is currently in contract with Lille to complete the transfer.
Italian journalist Nicolò Schira claimed LOSC forward Osimhen has been offered a five-year deal worth €3m (N1.3b) a year totalling (N6.5b) for five years plus add-ons at the San Paolo, President Aurelio De Laurentiis is certain the Partenopei will get the deal across the line very soon.
Schira writes the two clubs are currently working to complete the move as soon as possible.
The Nigerian youngster toured Naples last week but sources close to the player claimed the 21-year-old was being pushed to the Serie A side against his will.
Reports claimed the striker has put the concerns behind him and accepted a move to Napoli.
Also Belgian star and Napoli winger Dries Mertens has backed the club to bring in the Lille striker this summer.
Recently, Lille president Gerard Lopez was quoted as saying that should the move materialize, Osimhen will become a superstar at Napoli.
