The January transfer window is expected to be interesting for the Nigerian as a number of teams have already indicated their interest.

The Villans are looking to add more firepower to their attack, despite new manager Unai Emery having Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings at his disposal.

Atletico Madrid eye Onuachu

Meanwhile, Paul Onauchu could make a big transfer, as Atletico Madrid seem to have made an inquiry about the Super Eagles striker.

The Colchoneros are looking to revitalise their attack for next season, after an underwhelming campaign that saw the Spanish giants fail in their bid to defend their La Liga crown.

Atletico are presently 15 points off current table toppers and city rivals, Real Madrid. They were also dumped out of the UEFA Champions League in the quarter-finals by Manchester City.

Spanish giants interested in Osimhen

Sports Brief earlier reported that a former AC Milan manager, Fabio Capello has suggested that Real Madrid might be planning to swoop on Victor Osimhen.

Capello hinted this during the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards, where the 23-year-old Nigerian was named the young player of the year.

The former Italy manager disclosed that Los Blancos might be planning to raid Napoli as soon as the January transfer window opens.
