Ralph Hassenhuttl reportedly wants to sign Wolfsburg striker Victor Osimhen to bolster his attacking options.

The Nigerian spent last season on loan at Sporting Charleroi from Wolfsburg and managed to hit 19 goals in the Belgian Jupiler League.

It is reported by completesports that it would cost the Premier League side just €12m to prise him away from Wolfsburg and to the south coast. But his breakthrough campaign has not gone unnoticed elsewhere, with AC Milan, Lille and Watford all rumoured to be interested.

But Hassenhuttl has a reputation for his work with young players and the 20-year old knows that Southampton can be a phenomenal stepping stone for young talent.

With the competition at the club being Shane Long, Charlie Austin, Danny Ings and the returning Guido Carrillo, Osimhen might fancy his chances at regular first team football at the Saints.
