Napoli announced the signing of Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen from Lille on Friday.

Osimhen starred in Belgium, notching 20 goals in 36 appearances. A permanent move to France followed.

Internationally, Osimhen has been capped nine times by the Super Eagles.

Napoli is set to finish seventh in the Serie A table this season with one match remaining on the schedule.
