Nigerian international forward Victor Osimhen’s agent Ariyo Igbayilola has emphasized that his client will only join English Premier League side Tottenham, if their top striker Harry Kane leaves.
Osimhen has been on the wishlists of some top European clubs, after impressing in his maiden season in the French top flight.
The 21-year-old former Wolfsburg striker joint Lille last summer from Belgium outfit Charleroi, and became an instant hit at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.
He scored 18 goals and provided 6 assists in 38 games across all competitions for coach Christophe Galtier’s team.
Many top clubs in England, Italy and Spain are interested in the Nigerian’s services.
His agent Ariyo Igbayilola confirmed that Tottenham’s enigmatic Manager Jose Mourinho had contacted them on the player’s availability.
“We told Mourinho that if he wants Victor, will Harry [Kane] be leaving?,” Ariyo told The Cable.
“If Harry is playing for Tottenham will Victor play? Because he will always be benched for him.
“Kane is their number one striker and he is the captain for England, all these will always work for him at the club at Victor’s detriment.
“He needs a club where he will always play full games week in, week out. Not to be kept on the bench.”
Osimhen has always insisted that he will not make a move to a big club unless he is guaranteed game time.
