Leicester another club interested in Lille striker

Victor Osimhen is one of those players that could potentially make the summer transfer window be all about him. Whilst he is not the world-class star like Neymar or Kylian Mbappe or Paul Pogba, who are almost always part of numerous transfer rumour mills, but Osimhen is a player that many clubs will be looking for this summer.

His performances in Ligue 1 have guaranteed that and now Leicester City are getting to the list of clubs looking to sign him. According to a report from the Daily Mail, the 21-year-old striker is wanted by the Foxes, who are circling over him. So far this season, Osimhen scored 31 goals and added four assists to his name in Ligue 1, playing for Lille.

Daily Mail say the Nigeria international could be a long-term replacement for Jamier Vardy, but also that Chelsea are amongst clubs monitoring him. More competition could come from Italy, where Inter Milan also want the striker.
