Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen is poised for a move away from the Belgian Jupiler League this summer despite just joining Sporting Charleroi on a permanent deal from German Club Wolfsburg, AOIFootball.com can authoritatively confirm.
The 20-year-old, who made his AFCON debut for Nigeria in their 1-0 win over Tunisia last Wednesday, is expected to make a big summer move to one of Europe’s top clubs with Charleroi demanding a record fee before they would part ways with the young goal machine.
Osimhen, however, remains on the radar of both AC Milan and French side Lille who want to bring the Nigerian in as a potential replacement for Ivorien Nicolas Pepe.
They would, however, have to match the player’s €12.5 million asking prices after netting an impressive 20 goals last season with Charleroi.
Now holidaying in Nigeria after clinching bronze at the 2019 AFCON, the former U-17 World Cup winner would return to Belgium in the coming weeks to sort out his future ahead of the 2019/2020 European season.
Osimhen joined Wolfsburg in January 2017 after a blistering U-17 World Cup performance two years earlier but was not given the chance at the German club before moving on loan to Charleroi where he impressed in his first full season as a professional.
