Southampton will have to pay a fee in the region of €12m to land VfL Wolfsburg striker Victor Osimhen this summer, according to Le Soir, cited by Sport Witness

The 20-year-old is also being monitored by Javi Gracia’s Watford, Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan and Christophe Galtier’s Lille ahead of a possible move.

Osimhen has spent the season on loan in Belgium’s Pro League with Charleroi and has found the back of the net on 17 occasions in all competitions this season, as well as providing four assists.

That form has led to the interest around the talented youngster, with Egyptian club Pyramids FC ready to offer €6m back in January.

However, if any side is to lure the Nigerian away from his parent club this summer, they will have to offer at least €12m.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is expected to add to his attacking ranks in the summer, with Southampton scoring just 45 times in 38 appearances in the Premier League.
