After a long wait, Super Eagles striker Victor Oismhen was finally confirmed as a Napoli player on Friday, July 31, 2020.
It was Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis who first confirmed the move on Twitter before the club officially made an announcement of the player's move from Ligue 1 side Lille.
The announcement got Twitter Nigeria hyped as Nigerians reacted to the move.
The general sentiment was that of inspiration from Osimhen’s grass to grace story; going from poverty in Lagos to becoming the most expensive African player in history.
Many Nigerians are also ready to adopt Napoli as their clubs because of the Super Eagles striker.
Osimhen’s move to Napoli dominated Twitter Nigeria conversations as the 21-year-old striker remained on the number one trend.
