Lille boss Christophe Galtier has confirmed that Napoli targets Victor Osimhen and Gabriel are leaving the club this summer.

The pair helped Lille to fourth in Ligue 1 and a place in next season’s Europa League, but Galtier accepts they will be moving on in the coming months.

“Regarding Victor and Gabriel, yes, I’ve known for a long time that they’re leaving,” he said at a press conference.

“They’re working hard with us in the meantime. We’re working on the players who are currently here and those likely to replace [Victor and Gabriel].

“Of course, the club is working to replace him.”

A deal for Gabriel looks likelier at this stage, with the French side said to have already accepted an offer of €22m plus bonuses from the Partenopei.

On the other hand, they seem to want far more for top goalscorer Osimhen.
