Napoli have agreed an initial €60m (£54.67m) fee with Lille for rumoured Liverpool and Arsenal target Victor Osimhen, according to a report.
The 21-year-old scored 13 goals in 27 Ligue 1 games in 2019-20 to earn links with a number of heavyweight clubs across the continent.
Serie A side Napoli have long been considered the favourites to sign Osimhen, however, and The Guardian suggests that an agreement is now in place with Lille.
Various performance-related add-ons have been included in the deal, it is claimed, which could see the fee climb to €81m (£73.81m).
Osimhen’s arrival at Stadio San Paolo is expected to pave the way for Arkadiusz Milik – linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus – to move on later this summer.
