Lille coach Christophe Galtier admits they risk losing Victor Osimhen in January.
The Nigerian only arrived at Lille over the summer, but has been outstanding so far this season.
Newcastle United have been scouting Osimhen, with chief talent spotter Steve Nickson watching him personally before flying to South America a fortnight ago. Tottenham are also being linked with the striker this week.
"Osimhen stays with LOSC this season? Yes I think so, but in football, nothing is certain," conceded Galtier yesterday.
Osimhen has scored eleven goals and managed three assists in 21 matches in Ligue 1 and the Champions League this term.
