Respected Italian media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that Super Eagles hitman, Victor Osimhen has agreed personal terms with English Premier League side Newcastle United hoping to join them before the end of the summer transfer window.
The deal reportedly worth twice the amount (€4.5m) he is presently earning at Napoli which is about 3.4 billion Naira.
Further cementing his spot as the highest earning Nigerian player in Europe.
Newcastle United are however yet to agree a deal with Napoli over his transfer fee with the Serie A side holding out for a transfer fee in the region of around €100 million before they can sanction any deal.
The media outlet gathered the idea of asking for a €100 million is largely due to the fact that 30% of whatever is gotten from the sale of the forward will go to his former club Lille as agreed in the deal that saw him join Napoli two seasons ago.
Incidentally, La Gazzetta dello Sport reported in April that Osimhen was open to joining the Arsenal , but only if they qualified for the Champions League.
However, the Premier League side is now two points behind Antonio Conte’s Tottenham in fourth place with just one game remaining.
