Football enthusiasts have taken to social media to celebrate Victor Osimhen following his permanent signing to Napoli.

The Nigeria international joins Gennaro Gattuso‘s team on a five-year contract for a reported fee of €50 million from Lille.

The move to Italy comes on the back of Osimhen’s impressive debut campaign in Ligue 1 where he scored 13 goals for the Great Danes, who finished the 2019-20 campaign in the fourth place.


The transfer has led well-wishers, including the 21-year-old’s former team Lille, the world football governing body, Fifa and the Nigeria national team to send congratulatory messages.
