Napoli schedule meeting for Lille striker Victor Osimhen

Lille striker Victor Osimhen is the number one target at Napoli to strengthen their attack for next season.

Napoli have been chasing the Nigerian striker, scorer of 18 goals this season, for several months.

And according to Gianluca Di Marzio, an official meeting is planned in the next day or so to try and make progress.

The Naples club are in ‘continuous contact’ with Lille to try and land the striker ahead of the competition.

Osimhen, 21, is on the radar of a number of clubs following an outstanding year for Lille in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.

Napoli face losing contract rebel Arkadiusz Milik this summer, with Juventus and Atletico Madrid after him.

The Partenopei have considered Sardar Azmoun (25, Zenit), Everton (24, Gremio) and Donyell Malen (21, PSV) for their attack.

But Osimhen has been and remains their priority and the next days could be decisive in their pursuit of him.
