According to Skysport, Spurs are the leading side for now, with club boss Jose Mourinho desperately considering signing the Nigerian ace.

Mourinho is reported to have been plotting a move for the young star with the Portuguese manager getting more closer to Lille's sporting director Luis Campos who signed Osimhen in the summer.

Although Lille president Ebenezer Bajela earlier hinted that the striker would be tied down for another one year, a big money offer may see Osimhen depart France in January with Barcelona also in race for him.

Meanwhile, Osimhen himself had confessed he is happy at Lille and will be glad to help them book a spot in next year's Champions League.
