INSIDER: Spurs set to meet with Napoli target Osimhen today

Tottenham are making a sensational move for Lille striker Victor Osimhen.

The Nigeria international plans to leave LOSC this summer and last week spent 48 hours in Naples for talks with Napoli officials, including president Aurelio del Laurentiis.

However, Eurosport's well-connected Manu Lonjon has revealed on social media that Spurs are now threatening De Laurentiis' plans. Indeed, Spurs reps are due to meet with Osimhen and his minders today.

The striker is keen to hear from Spurs before making a final decision - which could be settled at the end of this week.

At Spurs, Osimhen would find former Lille coach Joao Sacramento, who now acts as Jose Mourinho's No2.
