Tottenham have been linked with Victor Osimhen this summer.
As per reports (via Express), Chelsea are keen on the player as well but Jose Mourinho’s side have already launched a bid for the attacker.
Tottenham need to improve their goalscoring options and Osimhen would be a superb signing.
The talented attacker has scored 18 goals this season and he could be the ideal partner/backup for Harry Kane next season.
Spurs have missed a quality alternative to Kane and the interest in Osimhen makes a lot of sense.
The player will be tempted to join a Premier League club like Spurs if a good offer comes in. It would be a step up for him and the chance to work with Mourinho is an attractive proposition as well.
The challenge at Spurs will help him improve as a footballer.
The amount of the bid has not been revealed yet and it will be interesting to see if Spurs can agree on a fee with Lille in the coming weeks.
The Londoners have limited transfer resources this summer because of the financial loss due to Covid-19 and they will be hoping to strike a reasonable deal with Lille.
If the French outfit demand a premium, it could complicate matters for Spurs.
