Lille striker Victor Osimhen dismisses suggestions that he has agreed to sign for Napoli during the next transfer window.

Lille striker Victor Osimhen has rejected claims that he has agreed to sign for Napoli.

Having netted 15 goals in Ligue 1 and the Champions League this season, the 21-year-old has been linked with a wide range of bigger clubs.

Although the Nigerian's representative has suggested that Napoli have registered an interest in his signature, Osimhen has insisted that he has made no decision regarding his future.

Speaking to Omasports, the frontman said: "The news relating to my agreement with Napoli is false. I am surprised by these journalists who claim to be professionals.

"Ignore this fake news on my account, when there is an agreement for my transfer you will know it directly from me."

Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have all been credited with an interest in Osimhen, who has previously indicated that he values first-team football over being regarded as backup to other players at a top European club.
