Man Utd join race for Victor Osimhen

first_img Lille forward, Loic Remy, had described his partnership with Osimhen as a good one, and he also hailed the attributes of the Nigerian star. Osimhen is currently Lille’s highest-scoring player in the French top-flight with 11 goals in 22 games this campaign and the 33-year-old is full of praise for the deep understanding they have forged together. “When I play upfront with him, I feel the complementarity. He’s physical and quick,” Remy told the Ligue 1 website. “He fights for every ball. I was fast (laughs), less so now. I feel comfortable with him playing as a second forward. With a certain game intelligence, I manage to create space for myself with my movement. Read Also:Ighalo, Osimhen, battle for 2019 Nigeria Pitch Awards “For now, it’s a good partnership. Victor has played more of his games as a lone forward. I spoke about things to the coach, and he told me he had the strike partnership in mind. Against Nimes and Strasbourg, it worked pretty well.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is seeking fresh goalscoring power and has turned to young Nigerian Osimhen, reports Le 10 Sport. Discovered by Lille sports chief Luis Campos last summer from Charleroi, Osimhen was signed for €12m less than a year ago. But he could now be sold on for seven times that amount. Lille would be prepared to sell this summer if offers exceeding the €80m Arsenal paid for Nicolas Pepe 12 months ago arrive. Along with United, Real Madrid and Barcelona have also made contact with Lille to register their interest.Advertisement Loading… Promoted ContentWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?It Looks Like An Ordinary Doughnut, But It Glows In The Dark!Top 10 Disney Male Role ModelsTop 8 Most Fun Sylvester Stallone MoviesBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

EPL: Wolves attack Everton

first_imgRelatedPosts Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise EPL: Wolves attack Everton Wolves vs. Everton Venue: Molineux Kick off: 12PMWolverhampton Wanderers play host to Everton this afternoon realistically requiring all three points to retain their hold of sixth position in the Premier League table. Meanwhile, despite registering eight points from five games since the resumption, the Toffees remain in the bottom half of the standings.In the space of a week, Wolverhampton Wanderers have gone from a club who were challenging for a Champions League spot to a team who must now improve just to gain a place in the Europa League.Two poor performances against Arsenal and Sheffield United have gifted the momentum to their nearest rivals in the race for the top six, while Espirito Nuno’s team selections and use of substitutions have started to frustrate supporters.The Portuguese made just one alteration against the Blades on Wednesday night, a rare occurrence for any manager since the enforced break, and it subsequently contributed to his tiring side conceding a potentially-crucial 93rd minute winner.Wolves have also barely laid a glove on either of their last two opponents, and it leaves Nuno’s close-knit group of players needing to produce a positive response this weekend. While victory would see them stay in sixth place, a third successive defeat could result in Wolves dropping down to eighth position.They go up against opponents in Everton who deservedly defeated them in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park, a result which had suggested that the teams were on contrasting trajectories.However, after a season of upheaval at Goodison Park, most Toffees fans will feel that they are making progress under Carlo Ancelotti ahead of the next campaign.Although they have recently failed to defeat Tottenham Hotspur or Southampton, a seven-point haul from their previous three outings gave supporters reasons to be optimistic for the future.Now sitting seven points adrift of Wolves, Ancelotti is likely to instruct his players to go on the offensive this weekend as they look to make a late bid for seventh. Wolves possible XI: Patricio, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny, Jota, Jimenez. Everton possible XI: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Mina, Digne, Walcott, Davies, Sigurdsson, Gordon, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.Tags: EvertonMolineuxPremier LeagueToffeesWolverhampton Wandererslast_img read more
