Le 10 Sport have linked him with Man Utd for possibly as much as €100million (£87m), and he’s now admitted discussing his future with current Red Devils striker and fellow countryman Odion Ighalo.

Ighalo moved to Old Trafford on loan in the January transfer window and has been a big hit at the club so far, and Osimhen says he’s given him some useful advice over his future.

While the Nigerian did not explicitly say Ighalo had advised him to join him at United, many fans will no doubt think that could be the hint he’s dropping here.
