Video: Barcelona target Victor Osimhen shows lightning pace with fine goal for Lille vs Valencia

Barcelona target Victor Osimhen has announced himself on the big stage with a superb goal for Lille against Valencia, showing unreal pace before scoring.

In the 24th minute of this evening’s Champions League clash between Valencia and Lille, Victor Osimhen showed electric speed to latch on to the ball after it was deflected upfield by Benjamin Andre.

The youngster absolutely burned Valencia’s defenders with his pace – despite their considerable head start, before slotting the ball into the back of the net.

Spanish outlet AS revealed last month that the talented forward was on Barcelona’s shortlist to replace superstar Luiz Suarez.
