Former Green Eagles winger, Adegoke Adelabu, says the five-year deal sealed by Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, with Italian club Napoli, is a big advertisement for Nigeria.
Lille will pocket €70 million in the first year, which could rise to €80 million based on performance-related add-ons.
Italian daily, Tuttomercarto tweeted in the early hours of yesterday: “All of the paperwork and contracts have been signed for Victor Osimhen’s move to Napoli. All that’s left to do now is the announcement.”
Osimhen’s €70million deal with Napoli is the most expensive signing in the history of the club and the highest transfer deal of the summer so far.
It is also the highest in African football history, as it stands €1million more than the African record transfer fee Arsenal paid Lille for Cote d’Ivoire international Nicolas Pepe last summer. (Guardian)
