Victor Osimhen can be Ligue 1’s next Didier Drogba, according to former team-mate Nicolas Penneteau. The 21-year-old Nigerian has lit up French football with Lille this season, scoring 18 goals and finding himself linked with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Barcelona.
After a slow start to his career, Drogba’s last season in Ligue 1 brought 32 goals in all competitions before he moved to Chelsea, and goalkeeper Penneteau – who played with Osimhen at Charleroi – thinks the youngster has similar quality.
“He doesn’t surprise me,” Penneteau told BFM with RMC Sport. (Text and photo courtesy Daily Trust)
