Lille reciprocated to Osimhen’s message with a heartwarming farewell message to their former striker.
The club tweeted in their official website;
“We’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to @victorosimhen9 and wish this Super Eagle the very best of #LOSC luck in his new adventure with @en_sscnapoli.
“Get ready, #SerieA. Thanks for the memories, @victorosimhen9.”
Napoli signed Osimhen from Lille in a €80million deal after the Italian side fended off competition from Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea to land the Nigerian international.
The 21-year-old had a breakthrough season scoring 13 goals in 27 appearances as Lille finished fourth in the 2019-20 season.
