French football club Lille has placed a 50 million euro price-tag on Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen.

Reports say top Europeans clubs including the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool are among potential suitors for the former Golden Eaglets forward.

Osimhen is regarded as one of Lille’s top performers but is expected to leave the French outfit in the summer.

Lille have now put an exit price on the player, insisting that any team that wants to sign the 21-year-old will have to meet the 50 million euros tag.

Real Madrid believe Osimhen can be the natural replacement for Benzema, at least until the arrival of a Kylian Mbappé in 2021 who they are waiting for with open arms. Italian club Inter Milan and English premier league clubs Everton and Manchester United have also enquired about Osimhen.
