Lille place €100m price tag on Nigerian Victor Osimhen

Nigerian International Victor Osimhen is a man in demand as European clubs are lining up for his signature.

But Lille are believed to have placed a huge €100 million price tag on the 21-year-old, with interest now arriving from many clubs.

Serie A giants, AC Milan are said to be in the hunt for Osimhen who only joined the Ligue 1 side last summer.

The Rossoneri could make a move for the Super Eagles this summer as they look to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who looks set to leave.

According to the Daily Star – who cite Le10 Sport – the Ligue 1 side are ready to demand €100million for Osimhen, who has 18 goals in all competitions this season.

However, Manchester United and Real Madrid are all expected to rival Milan for the Nigeria international’s signature.

Osimhen still has four years left on his contract, so Lille are not desperate and will only sell to the right suitors.
