Agent reveals how Osimhen made U-turn for Napoli move

Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen in action for Lille

The two clubs, Lille and Napoli, signed the final relevant documents on Friday, July 24 with Osimhen having already passed a medical with the Serie A club in Rome a week earlier.

"Welcome to Napoli, Victor, " the club said on their Twitter handle while confirming the arrival of the Nigerian from the French side, Lille. "All that's left to do now is the announcement".

Osimhen's transfer to Napoli is reportedly worth €70 million, according to RMC Sport, becoming the Partenopei's most expensive transfer and beating Gonzalo Higuain's €39 million signing in 2013 from Real Madrid.

Growing up in the Strikers Academy in Nigeria, Osimhen started his primary footsteps in world football. "I congratulate Osimhen for this record move to Napoli, but I will also advice him to maintain his high profile, and be a good ambassador of Nigeria in Napoli", Adelabu stated.

Agent WR Antonio Brown suspended eight games
The NFL can extend Brown's suspension depending on what happens in Brown's civil suit, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The league also warned that Brown would be subject to even harsher penalties if he violates the personal conduct policy again.

Osimhen enjoyed an incredible debut season in France, scoring 13 Ligue 1 goals for Lille who ended the campaign in the fourth spot before the league was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

He will wear the Number 9 jersey, which is now held by Fernando Llorente.

Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik has been linked with a move to Juventus, while there have been suggestions that Lille could replace Omishen with Rangers' Alfredo Morelos, although such a deal has yet to materialise.
