Tottenham signs Under-17 Star Victor Osimhen



Tottenham have completed the signing of Nigerian youngster Victor Osimhen, according to reports.

Osimhen, 16, was the star of Nigeria’s recent Under-17 World Cup triumph, with the forward scoring ten goals in seven games at the tournament, including one in the final against Mali.

Tottenham were reported to have opened talks with the player’s representatives during the competition, and according to AS he will now join Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Osimhen’s compatriot Kelechi Nwakali – who was voted player of the tournament – is also understood to be on his way to the Premier League with Manchester City.

If this compilation of Osimhen’s goals at the World Cup is anything to go by, Spurs have picked themselves up a serious talent…





Tottenham have made contact with the striker's representatives

Tottenham are showing keen interest in Nigeria scoring sensation Victor Osimhen.

The teenager has scored nine goals in the U17 World Cup in Chile steering his country towards Sunday's final against Mali.

Scouts from across Europe have been following his performances and Tottenham have made contact with representatives from his Ultimate Strikers Academy

The 16-year-old is a tall gangly striker with good technique who can also play wide. He idolises former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba and is eager to follow in his footsteps by becoming a success in the Premier League.

Arsenal and Manchester City have also been watching him closely but have been concentrating on his international team-mate and captain Kelechi Nwakali.

Osimhen and Nwakali were both on target for the young Super Eagles as they beat Mexico 4-2 in the semi-final on Thursday.

Osimhen has scored in each of Nigeria's six matches at the U17 World Cup, netting a hat-trick against Australia in the group stage.
