Former Chelsea attacker Salomon Kalu has described OSC Lille forward Victor Osimhen as a model attacker and predicted good future for the Nigeria international.
Osimhen has enjoyed great plaudits following his impressive season with Christopher Galtier’s side that saw him score 18 goals and making six assists in 38 games in all competitions.
The 21-year-old striker was voted as Lille’s best player of the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season, and Kalou who also played for Lille described the Nigerian as a magnificent player in an interview.
“There is the revelation, Victor Osimhen. He is very powerful, very fast, and in addition, he is skillful at the head and in front of the goal. He is a model attacker. He impresses me a lot.”
Lille owner, Gerard Lopez says the club have received offers for Osimhen but warned it will take about £70m to sign him. Chelsea, Tottenham, Napoli, and Newcastle have been linked with the striker.
