Victor Boniface is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe, with rumours swirling around his future.

Bayer Leverkusen is on the cusp of winning the German Bundesliga for the first time in their history, but they have not yet achieved the feat. Their performance this season has seen plenty of interest in their personnel.

There have been suggestions that Xabi Alonso could leave the club in the summer, with Liverpool and Real Madrid at the top of the list.

Some of their players have also emerged as targets for some of Europe’s top clubs. Florian Wirtz is one player on the radar of Manchester City and Arsenal, but the most talked about player is Victor Boniface.

Victor Boniface joined Bayer Leverkusen last summer and has made an impressive start to life in the Bundesliga. The performance of the Super Eagles striker has been so heartwarming that several clubs have enquired about his services.

With pressure on Die Werkself to sell this summer, the club has decided that the 23-year-old could leave the club this summer for the right price.

For a fee above 47.2 million (55m), the Bundesliga side is willing to discuss the player's future.

Reports suggest that anything below the mentioned figure will not be entertained.

Very few people expected Victor Boniface to be a revelation this season, but the Nigerian forward has settled in so fast that he already has a target on his back.

Victor Boniface, who missed AFCON 2023 due to injury and is still out of commission, is a target for several clubs in Europe. He is due to return in April.

Despite plenty of rumours surrounding the future of Victor Boniface and whether he will still be at Leverkusen next season, there has been little in terms of a bid.

However, the tide seems to be changing, with reports in Germany suggesting that there have been several enquiries coming from England.

The reports have not been concrete on the club interested in his services, but it is presumed to be a top Premier League club.

The price Leverkusen has put on the head of the Nigerian forward is not enough to scare away suitors, but which Premier League club is interested enough to take a punt on the striker?

Victor Boniface has scored 16 goals in 23 games (in all competitions) for Leverkusen as they challenge on multiple fronts.

The Bundesliga side is still in contention for the Europa League and is close to winning its first league title.

In the final run-up to the season, Victor Boniface will be needed, and his return from injury next month is timely.

The Super Eagles star has won one Bundesliga Player of the Month award. He also has a record-breaking four Rookie of the Month awards.
