Nantes winger Moses Simon believes Nigeria teammate Victor Osimhen is destined to join a "bigger club".
The 21-year-old elevated his game in Ligue 1, bagging himself 13 goals in 27 league appearances.
His performance have attracted some of Europe's biggest clubs, with Lille president Gerard Lopez confirming interest from Premier League clubs.
Having played with and against Osimhen, Simon is convinced the Super Eagle will make another step up in his career.
"He is still very young, strong and very good striker, a born goal poacher. I believe if he continues to do well, he will move to a bigger club for sure."
The Gunners paid £72m for Pepe and Lopez says it will take a similar amount to sign Osimhen.
"I am not being a sales guy because last year people didn't believe that we had the offers we had with [Nicolas] Pepe and it turns out we had multiple of them," Lopez told the Daily Mail.
"Let me tell you with Osimhen, it is the same thing, whatever number you heard, the high number I have read is very much on the money of the offers that we have received. That's where we are."
