Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has continued to enjoy so much accolades from his French League club Lille.

The Nigeria international joined Les Dogues last summer and he became an instant hit for Christophe Galtier's men.

He scored 18 goals and six assists in 38 appearances across competitions - a performance that helped him become the club's best player for the season.

The 21-year-old former youth international also won this year's Prix Marc-Vivien Foe award, beating fellow Nigerian star Simon Moses and others to the award.

Meanwhile, despite being linked with a move to Italian League side Napoli this summer, Lille have simply declared today, July 7, international Victor Osimhen day.
