Reports gathered this afternoon suggests Napoli rivals AC Milan are in for the signature of Nigeria sensation Victor Osimhen.

It was reported earlier that Osimhen is facing an undue pressure from his entourage and agent to put pen to paper with Napoli, but it now appears to be a two-way battle as Milan have jumped in to hijack the deal.

Napoli have been constantly linked with the Lille forward as he met with Coach Gattuso and club President Aurelio De Laurentiis last week, but still needed time to think before making a decision.

It is understood Lille will want in excess of €50m for the striker and Milan are aware of their asking price, as a player plus cash deal maybe included so bring down the price.

The 21-year old Super Eagles forward is given 48 hours by Napoli to take a decision concerning the deal as they are set to finalise it this week.
