‘Not what we need’, ‘no way’: Some Spurs fans not happy with what 21-year-old’s agent has said

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to discuss comments made by the agent of Victor Osimhen suggesting his client will only join Spurs if Harry Kane leaves the club.

The Nigeria international has enjoyed a superb season for Lille, claiming 18 goals and six assists in 38 games in all competitions, while his Ligue 1 tally stands at 13 goals and five assists from 27 games.

With the French top-flight campaign having been brought to a premature end due to current events, Osimhen’s involvement this term is over.

There has been plenty of reported interest in his services from the likes of Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, the Manchester clubs, and Real Madrid (Le Quotidien du Foot).

With regards to Tottenham specifically, the player’s agent, Ariyo Igbayilola, claims he has already told Spurs boss Jose Mourinho his client will not join Spurs while Kane remains there.

“We told Mourinho that if he wants Victor, will Harry Kane be leaving?” he is quoted by The Cable as saying. “If Kane is still playing for Tottenham will Victor play? Because he will always be benched for him.

“Kane is their number one striker and he is the captain of England. All of these will always work for him in the club but at Victor’s detriment. He needs a club where he will always play full game week in, week out. Not to be kept on the bench.”
