Top Belgian club Anderlecht look poised to beat several top English Premier League clubs to U17 World Cup hotshot Victor Osimhen, it has been exclusively gathered.
Osimhen scored a record-breaking 10 goals at the recent FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile and has reportedly spared off interest from several top EPL clubs including Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
But it has now been scooped that a France-based agent has secured an exclusive mandate from both Osimhen’s Lagos academy as well as Anderlecht to get the signature of the U17 shooting star.
Anderlecht are willing to break the bank for the latest Nigerian scoring sensation after the missed out on another exciting youngster Taiwo Awoniyi.
Awoniyi, 18, has signed for EPl side Liverpool but he is currently on loan at Bundesliga 2 side FSV Frankfurt.
He and Osimhen are both in Senegal for the U23 AFCON, which doubles as a qualifier for next year's Rio Olympics.
