New Lille signing, Victor Osimhen has stated that he would love to follow on the footsteps of former Super Eagles stars, Peter Odemwingie and Vincent Enyeama who both played for the French Ligue 1 side.
Victor Osimhen joined Lille on Thursday from Sporting Charleroi on a five year deal to become the third Nigerian to play for the club.
His signing comes as replacement for Nicolas Pepe who is bound for Arsenal after agreeing personal terms with the English Premier League side.
”The LOSC is a very good club that leads a quality project and includes high-class players, even more in recent years,” Osimhen told Lille’s official website.
”Great Nigerian players have also played here. I would like to join their lineage and follow their footsteps.
”I am very happy to be here and to join this great club that is the LOSC. I am still young, I am learning and I think that this project suits me perfectly to continue to progress.”
