Victor Osimhen latest transfer news: Napoli owner aims to put off suitors
Nigerian Osimhen, 24, signed from Lille in 2020 for a reported $80m making him the most expensive African transfer of all time. After relative success in his first two seasons, it is his form this season which has really put him on the lips of top clubs around Europe and his man-of-the-match performance in the 5-1 demolition of Juventus at home back in January, scoring two and assisting another was a particular highlight.
Osimhen scored a header in the 1-1 draw against AC Milan in the Champions League Quarter Final Second Leg, in which the Neapolitans were knocked out 2-1 on aggregate.
