Victor Osimhen, forward for Lille, has refuted ‘fake news’ that he has signed with Napoli on a five-year deal.
The striker was valued at €50 m and after just one season in Lille is expected to move on this summer.
“A lot of fake news about me agreeing on a deal with Napoli is sickening for real,” he told Omasports.com.
“I’m surprised at the journalists, that say they are professionals. I find it amazing. Please disregard any fake news, when it’s time for my transfer, you’ll hear from me directly,” he commented.
Napoli is currently the favourite but faces stiff competition from Liverpool, so Osimhen was upset to see news of a five-year deal with the Partenopei in Nigeria and France.
