Premier League target Victor Osimhen confirms talks with VfL Wolfsburg this week

Vfl Wolfsburg fans with flags

The Nigerian has been heavily linked with Tottenham Hotspur.

Last month saw Tottenham Hotspur heavily linked with the signature of young Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. It was reported by Spanish publication AS that the deal was done and that Tottenham had secured the services of this precocious talent.

It now appears that those reports were a little premature, with his agent insisting no deal was yet agreed, which will leave many a Spurs fan disappointed.

Osimhen was the star at the recent FIFA Under-17 World Cup as his side won the competition. He scored a whopping 10 goals at the competition in just seven appearances - including against Mali in the final.

He has now recently helped Nigeria to Under-23 African Nations Cup glory and seemed to be on his way to England to secure a Premier League switch.

But VfL Wolfsburg have also spoken to him this week, throwing a spanner in Tottenham's works.

As reported on Fussball Transfers the teenager's representatives have spoken to Wolfsburg and again confirmed no deal over his future had yet been met with any club.

The player himself has in fact visited the club, with Fussball Transfers quoting him as saying:

"I have not yet been signed. I'm just here to see the conditions, which I find really good. Everything else is in the hands of my advisers."

Osimhen certainly appears to be one of the hottest prospects in football and Tottenham would do well to snap him up.
