UPDATE - Osimhen opens up on his fears about moving to Napoli

Victor Osimhen
New Napoli signing, Victor Osimhen, has admitted he was sceptical
about joining the Serie A club, because of the issue of racisim in Italian football.
Napoli paid a club-record fee of up to 80 million euros ($94.6 million) to sign the Nigerian forward from Lille.
“There was a bit of scepticism on my part, because the issue of racism is a problem that exists everywhere,” Osimhen told journalists on Wednesday.
Then I visited the city of Naples, saw the environment with my own eyes and realised that I am in a wonderful city.
“(Racism) is a worldwide issue. I’m sure I have chosen well and the Neapolitans will make me feel at home with their love.”
Racism has become a recurring problem in Italian stadiums, with monkey noises directed at black players.
Last season, Mario Balotelli who played for Brescia, threatened to walk off the pitch after being targeted at Lazio and Hellas Verona.
