Nigeria’s Deputy Ambassador to Italy, Franklin Ogunyemi, has said that Victor Osimhen’s imminent move to the Italian side, Napoli has come as great news to Nigerians, just as President Muhammadu Buhari is excited with the development.
Napoli is expected to announce the signing of the 21-year-old from Lille any moment from now, and Ogunyemi, who spoke on Radio Kiss Kiss, a Naples based radio station, said the entire diplomatic staff in the Nigerian Embassy in Italy were delighted with the move.
“The entire Nigerian diplomatic mission, headed by Ambassador Yusuf Jonga Hinna, is very happy with Victor Osimhen’s transfer to Naples. We know that the Head of State of our country, Muhammadu Buhari, is also happy with this transfer.
Osimhen is a young player, but already very strong. He will perhaps be the highest-paid African player, a sign that we are talking about a very talented boy,” the envoy said. (Guardian)
