Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says the club’s new signing Victor Osimhen is a ’30-Goal striker’ , reports Completesports.com.
Osimhen officially joined the Partenopei on Friday from French Ligue 1 club Lille on a five-year contract.
Napoli beat a number of European clubs to land the Nigerian international who shone for Lille last season.
De Laurentiis is delighted that the Serie A club were able sign their preferred striker.
“It is certainly a costly investment, but he is a strong striker who our sports director [Cristiano] Giuntoli advocated,” De Laurentiis told Corriere del Mezzogiorno.
“He is a 30-goal striker.
“I met him and he made an excellent impression on me, I hope he quickly settles in our championship.”
Osimhen scored 18 competitive goals in 38 outings in his sole season with Lille which won him the club’s Player of the Season and the best African player in Ligue 1 award.
