Talented Nigerian player Victor Osimhen has attracted the attention of Tottenham Hotspur chief coach, Jose Mourinho.
Naija News Understands that Tottenham have submitted a bid for Lille striker Victor Osimhen but the bid amount stated is largely exaggerated,
According to report gathered Lille reportedly received a bid of €85m for striker Victor Osimhen from an unnamed club recently, rumored to be one of Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester United, according to a previous report, as mentioned in the Sun via Telefoot.
Football journalist Abdellah Boulma’s latest tweet confirms that Tottenham submitted a bid to Lille for Osimhen but the bid value is far lesser than previously thought.
”The #LOSC leaders would have received an offer from @SpursOfficial and not from #ChelseaFC for the Nigerian international #Osimenh, but the amount advanced of 85 M is erroneous and largely overestimated,”Boulma tweeted.
Jose Mourinho inherited a struggling squad at Tottenham and could certainly do with more options in attack, particularly due to the club’s reliance on Harry Kane, whose injury this season hit them hard.
Osimhen has scored 13 goals in Ligue 1 for Lille this season and a move to Tottenham could be on the cards as things stand.
