Osimhen’s agent Ariyo Igbayilola has insisted that the Nigerian striker will not be joining Tottenham unless Kane leaves the club.
Victor Osimhen has emerged as one of the hottest properties in European football after a superb 2019/20 campaign with Lille.
The youngster joined Lille from Charleroi last season and has since scored 18 goals and six assists in all competitions.
Number of top clubs are reportedly attempting to get the 21 year old including Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool.
Igbayilola has confirmed that Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has been in contact to discuss Osimhen’s availability.
He also says Harry Kane’s presence is likely to scupper any potential deal that may happen.
The Lille star’s agent told The Cable: “We told Mourinho that if he wants Victor, will Harry Kane be leaving?.
“If Harry Kane is still playing for Tottenham will Victor Osimhen play? Because he will always be benched for him.
“Kane is their number one striker and he is the captain of England, all these will always work for him in the club but at Victor’s detriment.
“He needs a club where he will always play full games week in, week out. Not to be kept on the bench.”
Kane has also been heavily linked with a summer transfer move to Manchester United.
The striker admitted back in March that he would not hesitate to leave Tottenham in order to win trophies in the future.
The future of Harry Kane still hangs on the air with the league set to resume June 17.
It is also uncertain when the next transfer window will begins following the coronavirus enforced break.
