Victor Osimhen

Lille striker Victor Osimhen is definitely one of the most sought-after youngsters ahead of the winter transfer window as reports claimed that he is being targeted by at least four clubs.

It was Newcastle who first showed interest in signing the youngster as the Magpies seek to replace Ayoze Perez who left for Leicester City in the summer.

Some days later, Spanish media outlet AS revealed that Barcelona have joined in the race for the youngster as Valverde is in search of a young but proven goalscorer who will replace aging Luis Suarez at Camp Nou.

Manchester United were later said to be eyeing the youngster, who has scored seven goals from 11 league games, as part of Solskjaer’s desire to provide long-term solution to his team’s attacking problems.

Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich were also linked with a move for the player as they seem to be preparing for Thomas Muller’s departure in January.

However, latest report via Calcio Mercato reveals that Serie A giants AC Milan have joined in the race for the player’s service and they are ready to slug it out with the other suitors.

As much as Lille will be happy with the number of clubs showing interest in the youngster, it remains unknown if they will let go of the former Sporting Charleroi striker in January.
