Belgian Jupiler league side, Zulte Warengem, presently are tracking Nigeria Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen to replace another Nigerian Peter Olayinka, who left the team at the expiration of his loan.

Olayinka who was on loan from KAA Gent last season, was the star man for Warengem both in the regular league and in the play off and has returned back to his parent club.

Osimhen joined the German Bundesliga side VFL Wolfburg, in 2017 following his outstanding performance for Nigeria Golden Eaglet in 2015.

He played a couple of games for the club, but injury actually pegged back the centre forward.

The Belgium football news outlet HLN, reported that Osimhen is expected to try out with the club next week and if he is convinced, the club will take him on loan with an option of outright purchase.

Osimhen made his competitive debut for Super Eagles in AFCON qualifier against South Africa at the Goodswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo.
