Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly leading the race to sign Lille striker Victor Osimhen this summer.
Osimhen is attracting plenty of attention from all over Europe, amid interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, to name but a few.
The 21-year-old has caught the eye of a number of leading European clubs, including Liverpool and Napoli, after an impressive maiden season in Ligue 1, scoring 18 goals overall at the time of writing.
According to Manu Lonjon, Spurs are set to meet with the Mastiffs to sort out a transfer in a matter of days.
The French football expert claims the Lilywhites are in line to discuss a possible move with Lille and the forward this week.
The Nigerian, who has scored 4 goals in 8 caps for the Super Eagles, has drawn obvious comparisons to his compatriot Odion Ighalo, who currently plays for Manchester United on loan from Shanghai Shenhua.
However, this claim goes against everything we know at the moment.
Daniel Levy has insisted he will not be spending “rivers of money” in the summer, as he has already taken out a huge loan of £175m from the Bank of England to cover the costs of these unprecedented circumstances.
Mourinho has made it clear he will have to rely on sorting out swap deals, signing free agents and pursuing bargain deals when the transfer windows open.
It is no secret that Tottenham need to sign a backup striker for Harry Kane, as the 26-year-old suffered a hamstring injury that ruled him out for several months, although he has now made a full recovery.
Osimhen would be a dream signing for Spurs, as his track record more than speaks for itself, but they may miss out on the talented youngster in the summer, as his market value is estimated at £24m via Transfermarkt.
