Mauricio Pochettino: Not signed youngster

Tottenham have not agreed to sign Nigerian Under-17 striker Victor Osimhen, according to the youngster’s agent. 

The 16-year-old has recently won the Golden Boot at the Under-17 World Cup glory, scoring 10 goals, including in the 2-0 final win against Mali.

Tottenham have reportedly been tracking the gangly frontman and signed the player earlier in the week, according to The Metro, but that has been denied by the player’s agent Shira Yussuf.

“We have not agreed anything with Tottenham Hotspur, it’s just speculation, ” Shira Yussuf told allnigeriasoccer.com.

“Victor Osimhen needs to rest, they shouldn’t unsettle the player with these transfer stories.

“How will a player be in Lagos and they are speculating he has signed a contract with Tottenham Hotspur?”

“For now we don’t know where he’ll play.

“We have a lot of top clubs in Europe that are after Osimhen but in due course the public will know where he is heading to. We can’t decide without the player.”
