Super Eagles and Lille of France striker, Victor Osimhen has set his mind on making a summer transfer to any club in the English Premier League his priority, even as interest is coming his way from numerous top clubs from Spain and Italy.
With the high-profile clubs from the Spanish LaLiga and Italian Serie A coming with big offer, Osimhen is thinking differently, as the former VfL Wolfsburg of Germany and Sporting Charleroi of Belgium attacker is looking only towards England.
The report out of France states that the 21-year-old product of Lagos-based Ultimate Strikers Football Academy has already decided he wants to continue his career progression with a deal in the English Premier League.
Details of the report by La Voix du Nord indicate that Osimhen’s agent has already ruled out a move to Italy for his ward and, though Barca or Madrid could provide very tempting options for him as well, the Chile 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup top scorer prefers moving next to England.
Osimhen, who finished as the highest scoring Nigerian in Europe’s top five leagues, is placed as a twin striker in a 4-4-2 formation alongside the Ligue 1’s joint-top scorer, Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder, with PSG’s Neymar on the left of midfield and teammate, Kylian Mbappe on the right.
The Nigerian enjoyed an incredible first season in France, with 13 goals on the domestic front, 18 across all competitions and six assists.
