Manchester United and Newcastle United are planning to get 20-year- old talented Nigerian forward, Victor Osimhen to their various clubs.

This development occurred after the prolific striker was linked with a move to Barcelona

A report in the French newspaper, La Voix du Nord, reads, “Barcelona and Manchester United, in particular, follow him regularly,”

English tabloid, Chronicle, also said Newcastle coach Steve Bruce has been handed enough war chest to boost the squad in the coming transfer window.

“Newcastle United scouts are therefore keeping tabs on Osimhen. The club’s winter talent search is well underway as head of recruitment Steve Nickson and his team look to compile a list of options for Steve Bruce in the next couple of windows,” The Chronicle said.Osimhen has been in blistering form since joining Lille from Sporting Charleroi for €12m in August, scoring eight goals and providing two assists in 12 appearances for Lille.

The striker recently won the Ligue 1 Player of the Month Award for September, on Thursday, beating Monaco’s Islam Slimani and Nantes defender Nicolas Pallois.
