Lille sold highly rated Victor Osimhen to Napoli on Friday, following the other day Lille has signed the veteran Turkey striker Burak Yilmaz from Beşiktaş.

The northern French club announced the signing of the 35-year-old for two-years on Saturday.

With former club Galatasaray in the Süper Lig, he has twice finished top scorer.

Including 23 in 25 games in the 2017-18 season with Trabzonspor, he also has more than 200 goals at the club level in Turkey. He has netted for the national side 24 times in 59 appearances.

Lille made a hefty deal with Napoli worth around 80 million euros (94 million dollars) deal including bonuses by selling Osimhen on Friday.

Lille is reuniting Yilmaz with midfielder attacker Yusuf Yazici who set many of his goals at Trabzonspor.
