Victor Osimhen started his club career at the Ultimate Stikers Football Academy where he had a successful trial.

Soon after, he was invited by coach Emmanuel Amuneke, to represent Nigeria’s U-17 team. 

Victor Osimhen was instrumental in helping the team qualify for the U-17 FIFA World Cup which was held in Chile.

Victor Osimhen had a bright start to the tournament as he scored two great goals on this debut, winning millions of hearts including those of European scouts around the world.

He eventually helped the Golden Eaglets to win the FIFA U-17 World Cup trophy in Chile and also bagged the highest goal scorer award after scoring 10 goals.

Eventually, Osimhen would be named the 2015 African Youth Player of the Year at the CAF Awards in Abuja in January 2016 and soon after, announced to the world that he would be pursuing his professional career with the German Bundesliga club, Wolfsburg.

Osimhen signed a three-and-a-half-year pre-contract deal until June 2020 and made his debut in the German top-flight in May 2017.

However, after four months at the Bundesliga side, the talented striker picked up a shoulder injury that made him go into surgery, bringing his first season to a premature end.

Victor Osimhen's struggles with fitness continued as he once again fell sick following a successful surgery, forcing him to miss the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Osimhen eventually overcame his nightmares after about two painful seasons. 

Inconsistency due to injury and sickness saw him fail to score a single goal for Wolfsburg thereby ruining his career in Germany.

Moving on, Osimhen eventually attended summer trials with Belgian clubs Zulte Waregem and Club Brugge but it turned to be unsuccessful as both clubs rejected the striker due to his poor physical condition.

However, in August 2018, Belgian club Charleroi eventually accepted him on a season-long loan deal and Osimhen finally scored his first goal in his full debut for the club on September 22.

Osimhen would eventually go on to score an impressive 20 goals in 36 games with the Belgian side.

 After dominating Belgium, Osimhen made an upward move to France in July 2019, signing for Lille OSC.

In the summer of 2020, Serie A club Napoli announced the signing of Victor Osimhen, for a club-record fee of €70 million potentially rising to €80 million with add-ons, making him the most expensive African transfer to date.
