Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen is ready to decide on a move to Napoli today according to his agent.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to Naples in recent weeks, he was in Italy last week to hold talks with the Italian club.

Osimhen impressed in his first season in the French Ligue 1 scoring 18 goals in all competitions for Lille.

“Victor went to Naples with his representatives. We talked and exchanged views on the city: the impressions were good, to tell you the truth,” Okolo told Calcio Napoli 24 .

“Victor isn’t always shy, although he would’ve preferred to make an important decision with less media exposure.

“After meeting De Laurentiis, Giuntoli and Gattuso, he told me he needed some time to make a decision, without any pressure.

“Later this week he’ll drop his concerns and confirm his decision, whether he decides to accept Napoli’s offer or not.”

Napoli's coach Gennaro Gattuso also assured Osimhen of his interest in him

“We’re waiting. [His decision] may come not long after today. The coach made him feel wanted. He believes a lot in [Osimhen’s] ability and what he can do," he continued.

“Victor told me there was an agreement on everything but that there was still a couple more things to iron out before the final decision: the announcement should be made by tomorrow.

Similarly, Super Eagles coach has urged Osimhen to join Napoli describing it as a good step forward for the young striker.
