La Liga club Sevilla are the latest club being linked
with a move for Nigeria international Victor Osimhen
in the January transfer window.
According to transfer market website Fichajes making
reference to our colleagues at Spanish sports daily
Estadio Deportivo, it is very likely that Sevilla sporting
director Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo (Monchi) is likely to
return to France to sign a new player after overseeing
the arrivals of Jules Koundé, Diego Carlos, Rony
Lopes and Lucas Ocampos last summer.
The two candidates being considered to beef up
Sevilla’s attack by Monchi is Lille’s Osimhen and
Metz’s Senegal star Habib Diallo.
The Super Eagles striker is having an outstanding
season at Lille and is among the top-scoring U21
players in the whole of Europe this season, with 14
goals in 26 matches, including two strikes in the
Sevilla face competition from Spanish and foreign
clubs in their bid to land the services of Osimhen.
Barcelona and Real Madrid plus English Premier
League clubs Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and
Chelsea have all been credited with an interest in the
former Wolfsburg starlet.
