Lille striker Victor Osimhen reveals that he declined the chance to sign for Arsenal previously in his profession.
Lille striker Victor Osimhen has actually exposed that he declined the possibility to connect with Arsenal when he was a teen.
Osimhen, now 21 years of age, is presumably desired by a variety of leading European clubs having actually scored 18 goals for Lille in all competitions this season.
Although the Nigerian has actually acknowledged that the Gunners represented “a good option”, the frontman has actually confessed that he rather chose Wolfsberg to get routine time in the first team.
Speaking With The Independent, Osimhen stated: “Arsenal was an excellent option however it wasn’t the very best at the time. I wished to start playing as soon as I turned 18.
“I wanted to go to a place where I had time to invest in my game and improve physically. Wolfsburg showed me that possibility.”
Osimhen made 3 starts and 13 alternative trips for the German outfit prior to heading out on loan to Charleroi, where his 17 goals during the 2018-19 campaign made him a move to Lille.
