Victor Osimhen has been voted Lille’s player of the month for September following his impressive performance for the Christophe Galtier’s team, Completesports.com reports.
The Nigeria international’s terrific form for the French Ligue 1 side has caught the eye following his arrival from Belgian club, Sporting Charleroi in the summer.
Osimhen was presented with the award during the halftime of Lille’s 2-2 French Ligue 1 home draw against Nimes at the Stade Pierre Mauroy on Sunday.
The former Wolfsburg striker saved the hosts from their first home defeat of the season, grabbing the equaliser 11 minutes from time.
Lille lost two of their key stars from last season, Nicolas Pepe and Rafeal Leao to Arsenal and AC Milan respectively, but Osimhen has proven to a capable replacement for the duo.
The 20-year-old has scored seven goals in nine league appearances for Les Dogues.
He scored his first Champions League goal for Lille in the 2-1 home defeat to Chelsea in midweek.
