Oghenekaro Etebo says Victor Osimhen must be assured of enough playing time before joining any top European side in the summer, The PUNCH reports.
The 21-year-old is expected to leave Ligue 1 club Lille during the summer transfer window, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid and Barcelona jostling for his signature.
Etebo admits his compatriot has the attributes to excel in any league in the world.
Osimhen is a good player and one that you can rely on at the moment and for the future,” Etebo said during an Instagram live chat with The PUNCH.
“He has done absolutely well in Ligue 1 this season and has been consistent in the last two seasons, which is also good for his confidence.
“He must be assured of regular playing time if he joins a top team in the summer. He has the attributes to excel at Real Madrid or Barcelona.”
Osimhen has scored 18 times and registered six assists in 38 appearances for Lille this season.
