The Nigerian international has been a revelation since he joined Lille from Royal Charleroi in June. With seven goals in Ligue 1 and two in the Champions League, Osimhen is currently Les Douges top scorer in all competition.
And that has drawn praises from one of his teammates, Loic Remy. The former Chelsea striker praised Lille’s scout for bringing the 20-year-old to the club, while he also revealed the former Wolfsburg striker has a big future ahead of him.
“I think Victor was a big discovery for everyone and it once again underlines the wise recruitment choices of the club who were very shrewd in the choice that they made, Remy said.
The former Newcastle striker also predicts a big future for the Super Eagles star, praising his attitude in training.
“I think Victor is a player with a big future. I am at the stage now where I can identify players who have potential and who are serious, and diligent in all that they do, and he strikes me as that type of player.”
“He trains with intensity, he is a real goalscorer who works on a personal level even after team sessions, whether it be weight lifting or whether taking the time to look after himself. ”
Remy also brushed off suggestions of animosity between them as it has been reported in some quarters.
“So yes, Victor is a complete player for me and he has a big future. Some people like to compare us as we are two attackers: Sometimes one plays and the other doesn’t, but there is no animosity between us.”

“He is someone I like, and as I said, someone, I feel has a great future if he continues putting the serious work, Remy added.
