Napoli closer to €80m double deal for Lille’s Osimhen and Gabriel

Napoli are getting closer to signing Lille duo Victor Osimhen and Gabriel Magalhaes, according to Alfredo Pedulla.

Osimhen, 21, was in Naples with his agents yesterday for a scheduled meeting and toured the city.

And the Nigerian striker, who scored 18 goals this season, is getting closer to a Serie A move.

Pedulla reports that Napoli and Lille agreed a base fee of €50m and will next work on added bonuses.

Meanwhile, Osimhen’s camp held talks with the Partenopei about personal terms. The forward will earn €3m-per-season plus bonuses if he joins Napoli.

The Premier League is Osimhen’s preferred destination, but no offers have arrived from England.

Napoli is an intriguing alternative for the youngster and they are now getting closer to signing him.

And Gabriel…

Rino Gattuso’s team are also in pole position to sign Osimhen’s Lille teammate, Gabriel, Pedulla reports.

Contrary to the €105m for both players being reported in France, Napoli would pay closer to €80m.

If a deal is finalised, centre-back Gabriel will cost the Serie A club around €30m.

Everton are also keen on the 22-year-old and could yet rival the Italians.

Before clinching deals for either player, Napoli first want to make some space in their squad.
