Anfield Watch Verdict
Osimhen really put his name on the map when he had a very impressive breakthrough season with LOSC Lille in Ligue 1 where he scored 18 goals and grabbed six assists in 38 games for the French side.
After only one season with Les Dogues, Napoli signed him for a reported fee of £67.5m, making him the most expensive African player ever.
His form with the Nigerian national team has also impressed a lot of people and he's started to become a huge figure in his home country.
Before he joined Napoli, Osimhen revealed that he turned down multiple 'interesting offers' from English sides, as cited by Mail Sport.
"Many predicted I will move to the EPL, and I had a lot of interesting offers from some clubs. But Napoli was the best choice for me," said Osimhen.
"It was so because of the kind of player I want to be in the future, and the kind of great career I want to have. I have no doubt that Napoli is the club I need to achieve that greater height."
