Tottenham are hoping to pip Manchester City to the signing of Nigerian strike ace Victor Osimhen in the January transfer window.
The 16 year old who plays for Ultimate Strikers Academy in Lagos emerged as the highest goal scorer at the FIFA Under -17 World Cup in Chile and his performances have caught the eye of Tottenham and Manchester City scouts.
Osimhen has already fired home nine goals in the tournament, including a hat-trick against Australia, as Nigeria have made it all the way to the final where they will meet Mali.
City and Arsenal are keen but reports suggest that Tottenham have already made contact with his representatives and talks are underway regards to a January deal.
