Atalanta bid for Osimhen

Atalanta are said to be preparing a €15m move for Charleroi striker and Nigeria international Victor Osimhen, according to Belgian reports.

The 20-year-old spent this season on loan from Wolfsburg and the club activated their clause to buy outright for €3.5m.

He scored an impressive 20 goals in 36 competitive games for RSC Charleroi, along with four assists.

Osimhen has two senior caps for Nigeria under his belt already and is tipped for great things, as a centre-forward or on either side of a trident attack.

He was top scorer in the Under-17 World Cup in 2015.

According to Belgian site DH, negotiations are at an advanced stage with Atalanta.
