Super Eagles attacker Victor Osimhen has arrived in France for his medical ahead of the completion of his move to Ligue 1 Lille.

Naija News had reported that the Lille are eyeing up a move for Super Eagles of Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen to replace Nicolas Pepe who is set to move to Arsenal.

Ivory Coast international winger on Tuesday conducted his medical and put pen to paper on a five-year deal.

It was gathered that Belgian club Sporting Charleroi and Lille have agreed on a €12m fee including bonuses for the 20-year-old striker.

The 20-year-old will sign a five-year deal with Lille, should his medical examination go successful.

Osimhen joined Charleroi on loan from German club Wolfsburg last August and scored 20 goals in 40 games for the club.
