Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr says Victor Osimhen has a big opportunity to move to one of Europe’s top teams, but insists the Lille striker must be playing on a regular basis to improve his game, reports Completesports.com.
Osimhen, who scored 18 goals in his debut campaign in Ligue 1 has attracted interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Clubs in Spain and Italy are also interested in the 21-year-old, who joined Lille last summer from Belgian Pro League club Sporting Charleroi for around £10m.
“Victor Osimhen will have a very big opportunity to go to the Premier League or Italy to a very big club,” Rohr said in an interview on Channels Television.

“This is a success for him, but also for the Super Eagles.
“If we have players playing at the high-level clubs, our level in the Super Eagles will also grow.”
Rohr also states that Osimhen must be playing regularly wherever he finds himself.
“If he is not playing, it won’t be good for him as a young player because a young player has to be playing to progress,” he added.
