Southampton Join Race To Sign €12m Osimhen From Wolfsburg

English Premier League club, Southampton, have joined the chase for VFL Wolfsburg forward Victor Osimhen, who has been in terrific form as a loanee at Belgian club, Sporting Charleroi, reports Completesports.com.

But the Saints have to pay a fee in the region of €12m to land the young Nigeria international this summer, according to Le Soir, cited by Sport Witness.

The 20-year-old is also being monitored by Javi Gracia’s Watford, Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan and Christophe Galtier’s Lille ahead of a possible summer transfer.

Osimhen has found the back of the net on 19 occasions for Sporting Charleroi in all competitions this season, as well as providing four assists.

However, according to a report in Le Soir , if any side is to lure the Nigerian away from his parent club this summer, they will have to offer at least €12m.

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is expected to add to his attacking ranks in the summer, with Southampton scoring just 45 times in 38 appearances in the Premier League.

Osimhen scored a brace to help Sporting Charleroi beat KV Kortkijk 2-1 on Monday to secure a place in final of the Belgian Europa League Playoffs.

  • I’d say he stays on that loan to sporting Charleroi, play in the Europa League, and keep improving. For every playing chance he gets with this now familiar team of his, the better he will get. NO RUSH!

    Southampton is not bad

  • Europa league willoffer him more market foe his goods.
    And he is better off a abig fish in a small pone rather than a small fish in an ocean.

    Go to only where you will be the main striker and not backup striker.
