AC Milan reportedly keen on signing Charleroi starlet Victor Osimhen and could snap the Nigerian up for €15m (about N6.2b), according to highly respected Italian website Tuttomercatoweb.
The website reported on Tuesday that the Italian giant have turned their attentions to the Super Eagles forward after being priced out of moves for Gerard Deulofeu and Yannick Carrasco.
Milan were working on a deal to bring back Deulofeu, but it emerged late Monday night that Watford gave the Rossoneri until Tuesday to offer €25m up front for the Spaniard.
Also a deal for Carrasco is also thought to be out of the Diavolo’s reach and TMW explains after negotiations, the Rossoneri are ‘ready to go live’ with the intention of taking the 20-year-old Osimhen to San Siro.
Osimhen, who can play anywhere along the front line, has 10 goals in 20 appearances for Charleroi this season, as well as three Nigeria caps.
However, he is owned by Wolfsburg and his loan club have a €3m option to buy, although TMW claims the Rossoneri could snap him up for €15m.
