Ligue One side, Lille are in pole position to sign Royal Charleroi Striker, Victor Osimhen as a replacement for Nicolas Pepe, according to reports.
The 20-year-old Nigerian is expected to participate in the 2019 AFCON which is scheduled to hold in Egypt in the next few weeks. He joined the Belgian outfit after they activated a €3.5m option to buy the player outright from Wolfsburg.
It is expected that Royal Charleroi will immediately sell him this summer – although Les Dogues have yet to make a solid offer – sources indicate that he is their most preferred choice to replace outgoing Ivorian attacker Nicolas Pépé.
The Belgian club are set to ask for €10m in order to sell the player. It is believed that Lille’s hesitation to conclude a deal comes from the fact that they are still weighing up a formal offer for Watford winger Dodi Lukebakio.
