The recent reports in the air about Victor Osimhen’s departure from Lille has generated more concern among Nigerian fans who wish to see the Nigerian play at the highest level.
Interesting Football has taken it’s time to look at Osimhen’s current status at the club.
Osimhen joined Lille from Bundesliga side VFL Wolfsburg and recently signed a number deal that would keep him at Lille at least till 2024, however recent news suggest he could leave Lille for another club.
Osimhen without a doubt is a talented player capable of scoring, a consistent player who Rose from the Youth scene to the big stage.
Osimhen’s record has been incredible, he scored 19 goals while on loan at Charleroi after thirty one appearances. Joining Lille back in July, he has gone on to score nine goals in the French Ligue1 for the club.
Should he leave at the end of this season? Or is too early for him to leave the club now? He’s got the qualities to excel at any club. However, he needs to brush himself up at least staying back at Lille for another season.
Nicolas Pepe left for Arsenal and have since failed to hit the ground running. Victor’s record is quite different because he proved to be a better player wherever he goes.
Osimhen’s best bet is to remain at Lille at least for the next one to two seasons or thereabout.
Interesting Football’s Verdict
Osimhen is an important player for Lille an as a result, he should consider staying at club because they need him more now. Last season the club finished second on the log and they’re looking to improve on that although they lost another key player in Nicolas Pepe to Premier League side Arsenal.
The player can still achieve great things if he stays at the club.
