The Nigerian forward’s move from Lille to Napoli and a couple of other completed deals during this summer have shaken up the rankings of the continent’s costliest stars
Victor Osimhen is now a Napoli player after agreeing to join the Serie A giants in a transfer that has set I Partenopei back a few million euros.
But where does the former Lille lad rank on the list of Africa’s most expensive players of all time?
Achraf Hakimi joined the Real Madrid academy in 2006 but spent the past two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund, where he forged his reputation as one of Europe’s best-attacking fullbacks.
The youngster was widely expected to return to Santiago Bernabeu after several stellar showings for Dortmund in the Champions League and Bundesliga, where he claimed important goals and assists.
But Antonio Conte quickly identified the 21-year-old Moroccan as his long-term right wing-back solution with Antonio Candreva entering the twilight of his career and Victor Moses only on loan from Chelsea. Inter Milan then paid $53 million in July to secure the services of the highly-rated fullback until 2025.
