 Lille OSC striker Victor Osimhen is on the verge of completing a move to Serie A side Napoli and has attracted the interest of President Buhari.

The Lille OSC forward is expected to finalize a €60m move to Napoli in the coming days that will see him become the most expensive Nigerian player.

Osimhen had alleged fear of a move to Italy given reasons of racial discrimination.

However, all that seems to be in the past now as the 21-year-old is now set to conclude the deal with the Serie A giants.

“The entire Nigerian diplomatic mission, headed by Ambassador Yusuf Jonga Hinna, is very happy with Victor Osimhen’s transfer to Naples,” Ogunyemi told Naples based radio station, Radio Kiss Kiss.

“We know that the head of state of our country, Muhammadu Buhari, is also happy with this transfer. Osimhen is a young but already very strong footballer.

“He will perhaps be the highest-paid African footballer, a sign that we are talking about a very talented boy.

“He is strong, fast, tactical. He has a characteristic of the Nigerian population: he never gives up. For these reasons, I compare him to Ronaldo.”
