Osimhen penned a five-year contract with the Blues.
The Nigerian international scored 18 goals and recorded six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions for Lille last season.
Osimhen came through the youth ranks at Ultimate Strikers Academy in Lagos and turned professional shortly after his 18th birthday when he joined Wolfsburg.
