Tottenham have launched a bid for Lille striker Victor Osimhen but according to report, the bid amount stated is largely exaggerated.
Lille received a bid of €85m for Nigerian striker from an unnamed club recently, rumoured to be one of Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester United, according to a previous report, as mentioned in the Sun via Telefoot.
However, according to the recent Le10Sport report, the bid is from Jose Mourinho very own Spurs but the amount offered is not entirely clear if it is as high as the reported amount of €85m.
Football journalist Abdellah Boulma’s latest tweet confirms that Spurs submitted a bid to Lille for the 21-year-old forward but the bid value is far lesser than previously thought.
”The #LOSC leaders would have received an offer from @SpursOfficial and not from #ChelseaFC for the Nigerian international #Osimenh, but the amount advanced of 85 M is erroneous and largely overestimated,” Boulma tweeted.
Mourinho inherited a struggling squad at Tottenham and could certainly do with more options in attack, particularly due to the club’s reliance on Harry Kane, whose injury this season hit them hard.
