UEFA Europa League

After Pépé, Lille finds another scoring talent in Osimhen

PARIS (AP) While Nicolas Pepe awaits his first goal since joining Arsenal for a club-record fee, his former team Lille has found another scoring talent in Victor Osimhen.

The 20-year-old Nigerian has scored five goals in five league games so far, helping Lille fans to forget Pepe's departure for a reported 80 million euros ($89 million) after he netted 22 league goals to help Lille qualify for the Champions League.

Osimhen was signed for 12 million euros ($13.3 million) from Belgian club Charleroi, and on current market and re-sale value that looks like a bargain.
