Victor Osimhen has signed for Napoli after the Serie A side splashed out a club record fee of up to 80 million euros to sign the Nigeria forward from French outfit Lille.
A source from Lille who was familiar with the transfer had said that the Ligue 1 team would receive 70 million euros with add-ons potentially worth 10 million euros.
That figure was then confirmed by Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis to the Gazzetta dello Sport who also report the movie mogul as saying that Osimhen had signed a five-year deal with the Italian club.
"It's 70 million euros to be paid over five years and 10 million euros of bonuses according to certain results," the Gazzetta reported De Laurentiis as saying.
"His contract will begin at four million euros a year and will progressively increase to 4.5 million euros by the end of the contract."
