The 21-year-old striker, who is already capped at international level, is also attracting interest from Bayern Munich and AC Milan, according to the website Soccer Link. 

Osimhen can play across the front line, although he's best through the middle. After spells with Wolfsburg and Charleroi, he joined Lille last summer for around 12 million euros. 

He's quickly become a key player for his new club and has scored eight goals and set up two more across 14 games in the league and the Champions League. 

Lillle signed Osimhen to fill the gap left by the departures of Nicolas Pépé (Arsenal) and Rafael Leao (AC Milan) and he has so far lived up to the demands. 

Barça are looking for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez, who turns 33 in January. There is no other out-and-out No.9 in Ernesto Valverde's squad at the moment.
