Lille OSC Make Record Bid For 'Nigerian Golden Shoe' WinnerPublished: July 23, 2019
French club Lille are interested in signing Nigeria's top scorer in the European Leagues last season, Victor Osimhen.
France Football is reporting that Lille are close to reaching an agreement with the Super Eagles star after making a bid of 12 million euros, with two million euros in bonuses.
Les Dogues are preparing for life without Rafael Leao who is being linked with a departure from the club this summer, and Osimhen has been targeted to replace the Portugal U21 international.
If Sporting Charleroi accept the bid from Lille, it will be the most expensive sale in their history, breaking the six million euros fee they were paid by Pyramids of Egypt to sign Cristian Benavente.
Osimhen scored 19 goals in 34 league appearances last season, including the playoffs to finish as the highest ranked Nigerian player in the European Golden Shoe rankings with 28.5 points.
The former Wolfsburg starlet was a member of the Super Eagles squad that won bronze at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
