Napoli player, Dries Mertens has said that he will help Victor Osimhen settled down with the Italian Serie A side.

Osimhen is set to join Gennaro Gattuso’s men after scoring 18 goals in all competitions for Lille.

The Super Eagles player recently flew to Italy to hold talks which will see him play alongside Mertens.

“I want to help the team and the young people, that’s my future. I want to help Osimhen and Petagna, we can play together,” Mertens told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“It’s difficult to come from another country and settle in, we must help them fit in here.”

He added: “On Saturday we have an important match against Lazio, and we must be confident and ready.

“Anything can happen. It was strange when we first played behind closed doors against Inter, you could hear everything. I’m used to it by now.”
