Victor Osimhen, Super Eagles and Under-23 striker, is a transfer target for Italian giants AC Milan and Premier League club Southampton.
The youngster who is on loan at Belgium club Charleroi from Wolfsburg, has had a successful season, scoring 16 goals in all competitions.
According to Daily Sun, the 20-year-old has verbally agreed a deal with AC Milan, before heading to LOSC Lille on loan for the 2019/20 campaign.
However, Southampton are keen on talking him out of that deal to join them in the summer, as they are confident the player will successfully obtain a work permit.
His parent club Wolfsburg are likely to ask for a fee worth £20 million for the striker.
