The Nigerian striker joined the Neapolitan outfit for an initial €71.2 million but a further €10.1 million is guaranteed in add-ons, taking the overall fee to €81.3 million ($96m) as reported by French newspaper L’Equipe.

It surpasses the £72 million Arsenal paid to land Nicolas Pepe who Osimhen replaced in Lille’s attack last season.

 

 

Osimhen will earn between €4 million and €5.5 million a year net without bonuses in Napoli – a huge wage increase from the €80,000 he was collecting monthly in France.

While former club Charleroi will receive €7 million from the transfer as a result of a sell-on percentage clause they inserted when he departed last summer.

Osimhen’s transfer to Napoli makes him the most expensive African player ever and We have now compiled a list of the top 10 most expensive African signings in history.
