Victor Osimhen flown to England to sign deal with a Mystery Premier League club
Last month saw Tottenham Hotspur heavily linked with the signature of young Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. It was reported by Spanish publication AS that the deal was done and that Tottenham had secured the services of this precocious talent.
It now appears that those reports were a little premature, with his agent insisting no deal was yet agreed, which will leave many a Spurs fan disappointed.
Osimhen was the star at the recent FIFA Under-17 World Cup as his side won the competition. He scored a whopping 10 goals at the competition in just seven appearances – including against Mali in the final.
He has now recently helped Nigeria to Under-23 African Nations Cup glory and is reportedly on his way to England to secure a Premier League switch.
Whilst it is not clear whether or not Tottenham is indeed his location but The Nation in Nigeria has reported that the teen left Senegal, where he was playing in the tournament, and headed to England to finalise his next club.
Soon enough it will be clear whether he has indeed become a Tottenham player or if he has in fact joined another club.
