Osimhen Set To Leave Lille At Coming Summer- Coach Confirms

By Abimbola Ogunnaike with agency report

Lille manager, Christophe Galtier, has confirmed that Arsenal target, Victor Osimhen, along with team-mate Gabriel, will be leaving the club this summer.

Osimhen, 21, has been in scintillating form for the Ligue 1 this season, with the forward scoring 13 goals in 25 appearances as Lille finished the 2019/20 season in fourth place.

It would be recalled that Lille owner Gerard Lopez revealed at the end of May that ‘multiple offers’ have been made for the Nigerian, but Galtier has confirmed that him and Napoli target Gabriel will be moving on.

The Lille manager said in a press conference: “Regarding Victor and Gabriel, yes, I’ve known for a long time that they’re leaving.

“They’re working hard with us in the meantime. We’re working on the players who are currently here and those likely to replace them. Of course, the club is working to replace him [Osimhen].” Galtier said.

Osimhen’s superb season for Lille has made him one of the most sought-after young attackers in Europe, with clubs in France, Italy and England interested in the 21-year-old.
