Premier League trio eye Nigerian striker

Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are all competing to sign Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen who plays for Ligue 1 side Lille.

The 20 year old only joined the French club in the summer, but he has already made a big impression with his new side, scoring 16 goals and providing three assists across all competitions.

That has made him into a highly prized asset, although potential suitors may have to wait until the end of the season to acquire him, as Lille want to keep him, and will only sell him if they receive a substantial offer.

Osimhenm began his career in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg, but, after failing to find the net for them once, was sent on loan to Belgian side Charleroi. There he found his feet, scoring 20 goals in 36 appearances and earning the move to Lille.

He has played nine times for his country at senior level, netting four times.
