Lille star Victor Osimhen has expressed his desire to play in the English Premier League.

The 21-year-old has been recently linked with a possible move to Manchester United where fellow compatriot Odion Ighalo is currently playing on loan.

Osimhem moved to Lille from Belgian side Charleroi in the summer and has scored 13 goals in 25 games so far in Ligue 1.

His very impressive form has attracted the interest of big European clubs, especially premier league clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur who wanted him as a replacement for Harry Kane who was out due to a hamstring problem.

Liverpool have been monitoring him as well.

Speaking to Independent, Osimhen said:

“Of course, one day I’d like to play for a big club in England.

“I’ve spoken to Odion [Ighalo] about it. He gave me very good advice, he’s a legend and a big brother.

“My goal is to play at one of the biggest clubs in the world but now I’m very happy in Lille.

“My priority is to play a lot of games. Signing for a big club and being on the bench is not exciting for me.”

This is not the first time Osimhen has been strongly linked to a premier league side as Arsenal wanted him in 2015.

However, despite lengthy talks with then-Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, Osimhenopted instead to head to Germany and sign for Wolfsburg.

He added: “I spoke with Arsene Wenger after the Under-17s World Cup ended and he wanted me to come to Arsenal.

“I had a lot of options: Barcelona, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Juventus and the rest.

“Arsenal was a good option but it wasn’t the best at the time, I wanted to start playing as soon as I turned 18.

“I wanted to go to a place where I had time to invest in my game and improve physically. Wolfsburg showed me that possibility.”
