Manchester United prioritise summer move for Ligue 1 striker

Manchester United have reportedly prioritised a summer move for Lille striker Victor Osimhen, with Real Madrid also interested in the 21-year-old striker.

According to French outlet Le 10 Sport, the Lille ace is being targeted as one of United’s priority signings for the next transfer window.

The report adds that Osimhen’s current contract still has four years left on it, meaning the star could command a significant fee, while Real Madrid are also mentioned as being one of his suitors.

Osimhen only joined Lille last summer, but has already established himself as one of Europe’s most promising strikers in less than a full season with the French outfit.

Victor Osimhen has been one of the best strikers across the top European leagues this season.

The centre-forward has bagged 18 goals and registered 6 assists in 38 appearances across all competitions this season.

Considering that January loan signing Odion Ighalo has impressed for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side since joining, should the Red Devils ditch a potential permanent move for the former Watford star in favour of a swoop for Osimhen?

Osimhen looks like he’s the future of the Nigerian international team, and the forward is bound to attract interest from top clubs if he keeps up his prolific performances.
