Chelsea transfer target and Lille striker Victor Osimhen won’t join rivals Tottenham Hotspur this summer, according to his agent Ariyo Igbayilola.
The 21 year old has emerged as one of the hottest properties in European football after a superb 2019-20 campaign that saw him score 18 goals and provide 6 assists for Lille.
Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have all been linked with the Lille striker.
According to the agent of the striker, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has been in contact to discuss Osimhen’s availability but he insists the 21 year old won’t join Tottenham Hotspur unless Harry Kane leaves the club.
With Tottenham unlikely to allow Kane leave this summer, this is definitely a big boost to Chelsea’s chances of signing the striker.
Osimhen’s agent told The Cable: “We told Mourinho that if he wants Victor, will Harry Kane be leaving?
“If Harry Kane is still playing for Tottenham will Victor play? Because he will always be benched for him.
“Kane is their number one striker and he is the captain of England, all these will always work for him in the club but at Victor’s detriment.
“He needs a club where he will always play full games week in, week out. Not to be kept on the bench.”
