BREAKING! Victor Osimhen is Saudi Arabia-bound




It is getting clearer where Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen will be heading to. His heart and possibly eyes are in the direction of Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia, the club where Odion Ighalo recently departed from.

According to Tuttonapoli, an online sports publication in Napoli, Osimhen’s journalist friend, Oma Okatugba has alreadly let the cat out of the bag. 

Responding to a question posed by the UEFA Champions League on social media,  Okatugba, expressed himself on Twitter only to delete his message: “Maybe he could wear another blue? A darker one? My friends in Saudi Arabia are positive especially on the player’s side.”

The tweet that let the cat out of the bag before being deleted

This is being interpreted as a clear reference to Al-Hilal. The Saudi club initially made a fruitless bid for Lionel Messi and had to formce Nigeria’s Ighalo out of the club to create room just as Al-Nassr did to Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar in order to accommodate Cristiano Ronaldo.

For days, Al-Hilal has been pressing on Osimhen to make a switch.
