Victor Osimhen, upon his arrival at Lille, has noted that he wants to follow the footsteps of former Super Eagles stars, Vincent Enyeama and Peter Odemwingie, after signing for the French Ligue 1 side.
Recall that Naija News had reported that the Super Eagles striker joined Lille on a five-year deal from Sporting Charleroi on Thursday morning.
Osimhen was signed to replace Ivorian winger, Nicolas Pepe who has agreed on personal terms with Arsenal.
The 20-year-old is now the third Nigerian player to be signed by Lille after Enyeama and Odemwingie.
“The LOSC is a very good club that leads a quality project and includes high-class players, even more in recent years”.
“Great Nigerian players have also played here. I would like to join their lineage and follow their footsteps.”
“I am very happy to be here and to join this great club that is the LOSC. I am still young, I am learning and I think that this project suits me perfectly to continue to progress,” he said.
