Dries Mertens has promised to help the Nigerian starlet settle in the Italian side next season.
“I want to help the team and the young player like Victor Osimhen, that’s my wish, i really want to help Osimhen and Petagna so we can play together.
“It’s difficult to come from another country and settle in, we must help them fit in here,” stressed the Belgian international.
Napoli are expected to announce the deal to sign Osimhen from Lille with Italian sources assuring it’s €50m plus bonuses and Orestis Karnezis.
According to report from the Italian sporting press, says little details like commisssions to agents and the payment schedule rather than any serious issues are the things delaying the announcement of the deal by Napoli.
Osimhen who is 21-year-old has been in stellar form for the Ligue 1 side, scoring 13 goals in 25 appearances as Lille finished the 2019-20 season in fourth place.
He only signed for the French Ligue 1 club last year from Sporting Charleroi, after he performed well on loan at the Belgian First Division A side in the 2018-19 season.
