Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has resumed intensive training with his new club Lille ahead of the 2019/20 French Ligue 1 season, as they welcome Nantes in their opening game on Sunday.

Osimhen joined Lille from Belgian side Sporting Charleroi on a deal worth €12m last week.

The 2015 U-17 World Cup Golden Boot winner was part of Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, where he played 45 minutes in the Eagles third-place win against Tunisia.

Osimhen will compete with Loic Remy and Yassine Benzia for a place in the starting role at the club.

The former Wolfsburg striker joins the club with an impressive record, having scored 20 goals in 36 appearances for Sporting Charleroi in the 2018/19 season.
