Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli insists there is no agreement yet for Victor Osimhen , but admits the club is interested in the Lille striker ,
Several reports claim Napoli are on the verge of completing the signing of the Nigerian striker on a five – year contract with an option of a year from the Ligue 1 club for € 60m , which could rise to € 81m after a number of performance-related add – ons .
But Giuntoli says there is more work to be done before the Nigeria international can be confirmed a Napoli player .
“ We need to reach an agreement with the new agent . he (Osimhen ) is a lad we are interested in and we’ ll see but negotiations are not as far forward as everyone thinks , ” Giuntoli told DAZN .
The 21- year – old scored 18 goals in 32 games for Lille last season .
Should the deal be completed , it will be the most expensive signing in the history of the club and the highest transfer deal of the summer so far.
Napoli are seventh in Serie A and will take on Inter and Lazio in their last matches of the season before they turn their attention to their Champions League tie against Barcelona .
Meanwhile , Osimhen is currently holidaying in Paris along with his close friend and Super Eagles teammate Samuel Chukwueze .
