Al Hilal set to make Osimhen highest-paid African footballer with £1m-per-week deal

Victor Osimhen

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen will become the highest-paid African footballer if he joins Al Hilal this summer.

The Saudi Arabian club have launched a stunning £120.3million bid to land Osimhen, according to Sky Sports.

There has been an influx of top players to the Middle East this off-season, where there are astonishing contracts on offer.

African players have not been left out, with names like Riyad Mahrez, Sadio Mane and Eduoard Mendy leaving Europe for Saudi Arabia.

Mahrez will reportedly earn £750,000-per-week on his three-year contract at Al Ahli, while Mane will pocket around £650,000-per-week at Al Nassr.

However, the £1million-per-week wage Al Hilal are offering Osimhen, will make him the best paid footballer from the continent.

The 24-year-old has held talks over extending his deal at Napoli, but there has been no agreement yet, with the existing deal set to expire in 2025.
