Club Brugge winger Emmanuel Dennis has predicted that Lille goal poacher Victor Osimhen will play for either Barcelona or Real Madrid in the near future. 

Dennis is aware of the qualities of 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup Golden Boot winner as they were teammates in Nigeria's U23 National Team before their promotion to the Super Eagles.

Touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Africa by the Confederation of African Football, Osimhen has taken the Ligue 1 by storm since his arrival from Sporting Charleroi in the summer and he is expected to move to a more glamorous league if he maintains his goalscoring form.

The Ultimate Strikers product netted during Lille's 1-0 win against Dijon last weekend, taking his tally to 10 goals in all competitions.

''Osimhen is one of the best attackers in France and even in the world. I think he will go far, as far as Barcelona or Madrid. I see him end up in Spain," Dennis told Téléfoot.

With 4 goals and two assists to his name in his last four matches for the senior national team, Osimhen has quickly established himself as the heir to retired Nigeria international Odion Ighalo.
