Bayern Munich Track Osimhen, Want Lille Forward As Replacement For Lewandowski

 

German champions Bayern Munich are scouting Lille striker Victor Osimhem, according to reports in France, Completesports.com reports

Osimhen, who joined Lille from Sporting Chaleroi this summer , has hit the ground running in France.

Since joining the French outfit this year, the 20-year-old has scored eight goals and assisted for two in all competitions, making him the second-highest goalscorer in Ligue 1.

Germany will be familiar territory for the Nigeria international who was once in the books of Bundesliga club, VFL Wolfsburg.

Osimhem linked up with Wolfsburg in 2017, making a total of twelve Bundesliga appearances for the Wolves.

He enjoyed a successful loan spell at Sporting Chaleroi last season, scoring 20 goals and making four assists.

An impressive season saw the Nigerian join Chaleroi on a permanent basis after the Belgian club activated its €3.5m option to buy, then sold him to Lille a month later for €12m.

Bayern Munich appear to be on the search for their next striker as they prepare for life without Robert Lewandowski and a backup in the meantime.

  • There is no doubt that he’s the rightful replacement for lewandoskii..

     
  • Ugbeva Scott 10 months ago

    Well it is good that he is being linked to a huge club as bayern munich. But every big clubs come with a huge responsibility and i would advice he plays 2 or 3 more years in france before sanctioning any move elsewhee. this will further build his personal performance rate. He still has a long football career ahead of him

     
  • He nerds to play two full seasons in France establish himself fully before any move.
