The agreed-upon fee for the 27-year-old’s services is €11 million; however, performance-based incentives could result in an additional infusion of €2 million (or roughly N11 billion overall). This deal demonstrates both parties’ unshakable commitment to facilitating a smooth transition for the versatile forward.

With an astounding 28 goals last season, Akpom, who is in the final year of his deal with Middlesbrough, finished as the top striker in the Championship.
