Belgium international, Dries Mertens, has promised to help Lille forward, Victor Osimhen, to adapt to Serie A when he completes his move to Napoli.
The Nigeria international has undergone medical with Napoli and it is believed a deal of around €81 million is close to being agreed by both parties.
The forward’s transfer was delayed after he changed his agent and expressed fears regarding racism in Italy but having received advice from Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly, he then made up his mind to join the side.

Mertens, who is Napoli’s all-time scorer with 125 goals in 320 appearances, has expressed his willingness to help the Super Eagles forward adapt to life at the club.
“Of course yes [I will help Osimhen]. We can also play together. Not knowing the language and the championship will take him some time, we must all be close to him,” Mertens told Radio Kiss Kiss.
