Victor Osimhen has officially become Nigeria's most expensive player after completing a big-money move from Lille to Napoli.  The Nigerian international 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.' Welcome to #Napoli, Victor! https://t.co/OoODAND8tP#WelcomeOsimhen #ForzaNapoliSempre pic.twitter.com/ncwBTz0CcN— Official SSC Napoli (@en_sscnapoli) July 31, 2020 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. A delighted Osimhen wrote on Twitter: 'Can’t wait to put on this iconic jersey,thank you for the warm welcome.' Can’t wait to put on this iconic jersey,thank you for the warm welcome @sscnapoli #forzanapolisempre pic.twitter.com/LrwrBkdkoL— victor osimhen (@victorosimhen9) July 31, 2020The post Victor Osimhen becomes Nigeria’s most expensive player after signing a 50m deal to join Napoli from Lille appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
