Man Utd, Chelsea among scramble for Lille striker Victor Osimhen

Europe's biggest clubs are chasing Lille striker Victor Osimhen for the summer market.

Le Quotidien du Foot says Osimhen, 21, arrived from Belgian outfit Charleroi in July 2019 for a bargain £10million plus a further £2.5m in add-ons.

And he's already proved an astute acquisition having scored 18 goals and provided six assists in 38 appearances for the Ligue 1 side - including two in the Champions League.

Now, he's attracted interest from Premier League quartet Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Roma and Napoli are also said to be interested in Osimhen, who is said to command a fee in the region of £90million.
