Lille Chief Executive Officer Marc Ingla is confident Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen can fulfil his huge potential at the French Ligue 1 club, reports Completesports.com.
Osimhen, 20, linked up with Lille on Thursday on a five-year contract from Belgian club, Sporting Charleroi.
The young forward netted 20 times on 36 league appearances for Charleroi last season, prompting the modest club to make his loan deal from Bundesliga outfit, VFL Wolfsburg permanent.
A delighted Ingla stated that Lille can help the striker reach the top in world football in a coupe of years following his unveiling on Thursday morning.
“We welcome Victor Osimhen today with a lot of fun. He is a player with great potential who has already demonstrated his value and his ability to establish himself as a good scorer in a nearby league, in Belgium, which can also facilitate his integration,” Ingla told Lille’s official website.
“Victor is a fast player with a very vertical game, great physical abilities and a real intuition in front of the goal. Despite his young age, he is already an international in Nigeria.
“He goes one step at a time, which allows him to consolidate his nascent fame in the world football landscape. It will be our job and especially that of the technical staff to help maintain this progress.”
