Lille forward Victor Osimhen will be the subject of interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona this summer, according to a report.

Barcelona and Real Madrid will reportedly lock horns for the signature of Lille forward Victor Osimhen in this summer's transfer window.

The 21-year-old has been in impressive form for his French club during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 15 times in 31 appearances in all competitions.

According to Le10Sport, both Barca and Madrid contacted Lille during the January window to discuss the possibility of a midseason move.

Neither club were able to complete a deal for the Nigeria international, but the report claims that the Spanish pair will battle for the attacker's signature at the end of the current season.

Osimhen scored twice in five Champions League group-stage appearances earlier this season, including a goal against Chelsea at the start of October.

Lille will be in a strong position when it comes to any potential negotiations, though, as the former Wolfsburg youngster is signed to the Ligue 1 side until the summer of 2024.
