Napoli edging closer to Osimhen signing as Lille look to sell quickly – Immobile remains the backup option

Gianluca Di Marzio reports tonight that Napoli are moving closer towards signing Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. With the Azzurri currently the only club ready to make the financial outlay on the player, Lille are reportedly looking to get the deal across the line as quickly as possible to bring in the transfer fee.

Although other European clubs are interested in the forward, Lille may encourage him to sign with the Neapolitans, who look to have the most concrete offer

Although Osimhen’s arrival is shaping up, Napoli are still keeping tabs on Lazio striker Ciro Immobile, who remains the club’s backup option should the deal involving the Nigerian fall through.
