Osimhen declared fit for Lille’s visit to Monaco

Lille’s forward Victor Osimhen has been passed fit and ready for his club’s Ligue 1 fixture against Monaco on Saturday after suffering a health scare during the midweek.

The Super Eagles forward was rushed to hospital on Wednesday but he is cleared to feature in Saturday’s league game.

The 20-year-old felt dizzy and also had pains in his chest during a League Cup match against the Red and Whites on Tuesday and was rushed to the hospital.

Osimhen scored a goal in the fixture which ended 3-0 in their favour before he was replaced by former Chelsea striker Loic Remy in the 23rd minute.

At the end of the game, Lille boss Christophe Galtier eased the fear of a serious injury and their highest-scoring player this season has been declared available for their second visit to Stade Louis II within a week.

Osimhen who has scored 12 goals across all competitions so far this term, will be looking to extend his tally of nine league goals against Henry Onyekuru and Islam Slimani’s Monaco who have struggled all season.
