Napoli has finally completed the signing of Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, from French side, Lille, in a £74million deal.

The Serie A side beat competition from Arsenal and Chelsea to sign the Nigeria international.

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

After commencing his senior career at Wolfsburg, Osimhen 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.
