Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam have joined the hunt to sign on loan Wolfsburg forward Victor Osimhen who has taken the Belgium league by storm this season with seven goals in 13 games for modest side Charleroi.
Osimhen caught the eyes of scouts of the Dutch side who were initially in the running to sign him after his exploits at the 2015 World Youth Championship before he decided to team up with Wolfsburg.
At Wolfsburg he struggled to find his best form with injuries and fitness issues playing a role in his struggle at the club but he has blossomed in Belgium so far which has once again alerted Ajax to his availability in the summer.
Although Charleroi has the first option of making his deal permanent, they could be priced out of a move as Wolfsburg will demand a fee in excess of €3m with several add ons for the 19 year old.
Wolfsburg have also not ruled out having him back in the squad next season as he has been offered terms of an extension with a pay rise by the team after impressing at Charleroi.
Ajax will no doubt fancy their chances of signing him permanently next summer as they are expected to have cash to spend on new players with about three of their first team players set for big money move away from the team around same time Osimhen’s loan deal will terminate with Charleroi.
