Victor Osimhen has scored eight goals in all competitions for Lille so far this season. Osimhen has scored seven league goals in nine games for the Great Danes this season with one in the Champions League which came against Chelsea.  In September, he also scored for the Super Eagles in their 2-2 draw against Ukraine in a friendly game.
