Real Madrid, Barcelona Show New Interest In Osimhen

The duo of Barcelona and Real Madrid have once again shown their interest in Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen this summer.

French newspaper Le10 Sport claim that both Spanish giants contacted Lille during the January transfer window about a potential move for Osimhen.

Their advances for the 21-year old, who joined from Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg last summer in a €13.5m deal, were rejected by The Ligue 1 club in January.

Osimhen has caught the eye for club and country so far this season, with 16 goals in 32 goals in all competitions for Lille, and four goals in seven matches for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Christophe Galtier’s side are reported to be willing to consider bids in the region of €35m for the Nigerian, who still has another four and a half years to run on his contract at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
