- Victor Osimhen's agent has ruled out his client joining Premier League this summer
- The Nigerian striker has been linked with move to Arsenal and Spurs
- Osimhen netted 18 goals for Lille before the season was cancelled
Victor Osimhen's agent Osita Okolo has stated emphatically that his client is not interested in a move to the Premier League in the coming transfer window.
The Nigerian striker has enjoined the season at French side Lille having joined them last summer from German side Charleroi as a replacement for Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe.
Osimhen began his debut season in France with great skills which has attracted many clubs in Europe who are looking for his signature.
He scored 18 goals in all competitions with six assists for Lille before the season in France was cancelled because of coronavirus.
There were reports last week that Osimhen had agreed a deal to join Napoli in which the Nigerian angrily rubbished claiming that there was even no talks between him and the club.
Now Osita Okolo has explained while speaking with Marte that his player is not thinking about move to the Premier League.
“I can deny that he dreams of going to the Premier League, I don’t know why the press says certain things. Naples is a fantastic city and Napoli are a very good team,'' Osita explained.
This latest development will come as a disappointing one for the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United who are interested in signing Osimhen.
Tottenham and Liverpool have also been linked with the Super Eagles striker who was part of Gernot Rohr's team that won bronze at 2019 AFCON.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how former Super Eagles striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni explained that Nigerians are still angry about the goal he missed at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa against South Korea.
The 37-year-old explained that many still send him messages as regard the empty net he missed against South Korea. Yakubu Aiyegbeni's miss truly remains one of the worst misses ever in the history of football and not the World Cup alone.
Nigerians were so angry after the former Blackburn Rovers' man missed the goal which could have given the Super Eagles glorious chance in the game.
And now Yakubu explained that he feels bad because people have not forgotten what happened ten years ago.
The game against South Korea ended 2-2 with Yakubu Aiyegbeni scoring late penalty for Nigeria which failed to take them to the round of 16.
