Nigeria international Osimhen came to Europe in 2017 when he signed for Wolfsburg, but he was allowed to join Belgian club Charleroi on loan and they triggered a purchase right on him only last year after scoring 20 times in 2018-19.

According to reports in Italy, the deal would eventually reach € 54 million, which make him a record signing of Napoli.
