RC Lens to battle LOSC Lille for Barcelona-linked 20-goal Nigerian prodigy

Gift Emmanuel Orban, the young Nigerian striker who has been shining for KAA Gent, may soon be making his mark in Ligue 1 as two French clubs, Lille and Lens, compete for his signature. Orban has only been with Gent for six months, but he has already taken the Belgian football scene by storm, scoring an impressive 20 goals in 22 games across all competitions, along with two assists. His lightning-fast hat-trick in just three minutes against İstanbul Başakşehir in the Europa League Conference has made him a hot commodity.

Orban’s exceptional performances have reportedly caught the attention of FC Barcelona, but it is LOSC and RC Lens, two French clubs preparing for European campaigns next season, who are currently battling for his coveted signature. Both teams boast formidable attacking options with Loïs Openda and Jonathan David, respectively, but these highly sought-after players are expected to make moves during the summer transfer window.

A thrilling transfer faceoff between the two Hauts-de-France clubs is on the horizon as they engage in concrete negotiations to entice Orban to join their ranks in Ligue 1. However, Gent is anticipating a substantial transfer fee of not less than €20 million to facilitate his departure, having secured his services for a mere €3.5 million barely six months ago.
