Inter Wants Osimhen As Icardi Replacement.
Victor Osimhen could join Inter Milan in the summer and not their city rivals AC Milan who were keen on signing him during the recently concluded January transfer window, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Osimhen has taken the Belgium league by storm this season with ten league goals to his name for modest side Charleroi and despite the option of signing him permanently in the summer, there’s every chance of the forward leaving.
His loan deal with Charleroi has a clause agreed with Wolfsburg for him to be signed permanently for a fee in the region of €5m although his current market value is double that amount now.
Inter Milan contacted his representatives about a possible deal and it is believed that he is their prime target for former captain Mauro Icardi who is currently involved in a row with the club after he was stripped off the captain armband.
The deal for Osimhen will no doubt encounter some complications as Charleroi are willing to use every means available to trigger the clause of buying him permanently before selling him for a hefty profit and also a percentage of his future sale.
Wolfsburg on the other hand want the striker back after his loan spell but it is believed they want to trade him off as their player to recoup some of their investment in the player they signed in 2015 following his exploits at the U17 World Youth Championship.
