Tottenham Hotspur to hijack Liverpool's move for £75m Victor Osimhen?

Tottenham Hotspur prepare a move for Lille forward Victor Osimhen as the interest in the Nigerian grows, according to a report.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly preparing a move for Lille forward Victor Osimhen.

The 21-year-old enjoyed an excellent 2019-20 campaign for his French club, scoring 18 times and registering six assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.

Napoli have been strongly linked with the Nigeria international, but a host of Premier League clubs also continue to be credited with an interest ahead of this summer's transfer window.

According to The Express, Liverpool have 'moved into pole position' for the attacker, but Spurs are now 'weighing up a late move' to bring him to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Lille are believed to be demanding £75m, which Napoli have agreed to meet, but the Nigerian is thought to be keen to secure a move to England ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Osimhen, who scored 13 times in 27 Ligue 1 outings last season, has a contract with Christophe Galtier's side until the summer of 2024.
