Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s “priority” in the summer is Lille striker Victor Osimhen, claims a report.
Nigeria striker Osimhen, 21, has scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for Lille this season after joining from Belgian outfit Charleroi last summer.
Such form saw him linked with Liverpool and Tottenham in the January transfer window; the Reds had reportedly been tracking the 21-year-old extensively throughout the first half of the season.
Now though French publication Le10 Sport claim United have locked on to the forward and looking to strike a deal in the summer, which could see them pair Osimhen with loan star Odion Ighalo.
Solskjaer is keen to make Ighalo’s loan permanent and the French source report that United feel Osimhen has “all the qualities” to succeed in the Premier League.
Solskjaer, who is also believed to be watching developments regarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future, could face competition from Real Madrid, who are also keen on the Lille man.
