Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen on signing Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen from French club, Lille.
Mourinho is looking for more options in attack in a bid to keep Harry Kane fresh and in Osimhen, who can play as a central striker or in the wider roles, the €20m-rated man could prove an option, according to a report in Jeunes Footeux.
The 20-year-old Nigeria international has 11 goals in 20 appearances for Lille so far this season.
Osimhen netted 20 times in 31 games while on loan with Belgian club Sporting Charleroi last term.
Mourinho has also signalled the go-ahead for the club to launch January raid for Osimhen’s Lille teammate Boubakary Soumare.
The 20-year-old defensive midfielder has earned rave reviews for his dominating displays in Ligue 1 this season, having also caught the eye in the Champions League, despite his side finishing bottom of their group.
