Breaking: Victor Osimhen To Join Wolfsburg
Victor Osimhen revealed that he would be joining German club Wolfsburg on Thursday, moments after he was named Youth Player of the Year at the Caf Awards in Abuja.
The youngster, who won the Fifa U17 World Cup in 2015 as well as the golden boot while breaking the tournament’s scoring record with 10 goals, has been linked with various sides including Arsenal.
“I have visited the team in Wolfsburg and with the promises the coach made to me when I visited the arena, I think Wolfsburg is my destination,” Osimhen told media.
Asked whether the Bundesliga side is a temporary stop before moving to bigger teams in England or Spain, he said: “I’m going to stay at Wolfsburg for as long as the team can keep me.”
Osimhen was named second most valuable player at the Fifa U17 World Cup behind team mate Kelechi Nwakali.
