Lille have received 'multiple bids' for Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen, the Ligue 1 club's owner Gerard Lopez has confirmed.

Osimhen, who has scored 18 goals for Lille in his debut campaign in the French top flight, continues to be a transfer target for heavyweight sides in Europe.

Osimhen has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, but the 21-year-old’s agent recently said his client is keen for regular first-team football and won’t be moving to Spurs if Harry Kane doesn’t secure a move away from the north London club.

Lille owner Lopez told the Daily Mail: "There are multiple offers.

"We turned down one English and one Spanish offer this January transfer window.

"There is a wide array [this summer] and I wouldn't want to give the names of the clubs who are bidding but what I can tell you is that there are multiple [offers]. There are three championships that have clubs that have bid for him."

He added: "I am not being a sales guy because last year people didn't believe that we had the offers we had with [Nicolas] Pepe and it turns out we had multiple of them.

"Let me tell you with Osimhen, it is the same thing, whatever number you heard, the high number I have read is very much on the money of the offers that we have received. That's where we are."
