Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze has told Valencia to be wary of Lille striker Victor Osimhen ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash on Wednesday.
Lille who lost their opening two group matches to Ajax and Chelsea are hoping to bounce back into reckoning when they host Valencia at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.
Chukwueze who is one of the 10 nominees for the 2019 edition of the prestigious Kopa Trophy Award believes his international teammate will be a handful for the opposition.
“He is a great player, he has a lot of speed and [eye for] goal, he reads [the opposition] very well. He is a very complete forward,” Chukwueze told Spanish online news outlet, Superdeporte.es.
Chukwueze and Osimhen have been playing together in Nigeria youth teams since the age of 16 when they both won the FIFA U-17 World Cup with the Golden Eaglets in Chile in 2015.
They have both been promoted to the senior national team and have scored their debut international goal.
