As the world patiently awaits the official announcement from Napoli on the signing of Victor Osimhen, the striker's former agent, Jean-Gerard Benoit Czajka, has revealed some events that helped influence the 21-year old's decision.

The talented player will see a €70million payday in the first year which could rise to €80million based on performance-related add-ons. "All that's left to do now is the announcement".

Victor Osimhen has completed a whopping €50 million transfer to Napoli, becoming the most expensive Nigerian player ever and the fifth-costliest African player in history.

It is also the highest in African football history, as it stands €1million more than the African record transfer fee Arsenal paid Lille for Cote d'Ivoire worldwide Nicolas Pepe last summer.

"When we talk of Brazil as a nation, what comes to the mind is the large turn over of quality footballers from the country to the rest of the world".

Tuttomecartowebb reported on Wednesday afternoon that only Laurentiis signature is missing from the contract paperwork that is about 36 pages after which the former Lille striker will officially become Napoli's newest buy.

He will wear the Number 9 jersey, which is now held by Fernando Llorente.

Lille purchased him from RSC Charleroi last summer for €14m and he scored 18 goals with six assists in 38 competitive games for the French side this season.
