    According to Wolfsburg's Sporting director, Olaf Rebbe in a chat to the club's official website: "We have been intensively observing Victor’s development over a long period and we were able to secure the signing in spite of interest from big clubs from abroad. Victor‘s profile totally fits into our philosophy of not only developing talented young players from within the club, but also binding foreign players to VfL in the long-term.

    Victor Osimhen pulled interest from top clubs after he emerge the top scorer at the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile where he scored ten goals.

     "I’d like to thank the coach and the sporting director for having me here, for giving me this chance and for believing in me. Wolfsburg is the right place for me to get my career started. It’s up to me to give something back now. To do that, I must work hard and learn," Osimhen told

    The Green-White gaffer, Valérien Ismaël shared his views about Victor Osimhen's qualities.

     "Although just 18, Victor already possesses great presence in attack. He has a good eye for goal and he is fast for a lad of his height. He does need to build up a bit physically and get used to how football is played in Germany, but we intend to help him take those steps." Valérien Ismaël stated.
