Having scored 19 goals in just as many games for Gent in Belgium’s top division this season, the Nigerian forward has drawn attention. Having won the match ball three times this season, he made headlines with a hat-trick in the Europa Conference League.
The 20-year-old is apparently being watched by scouts from Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Fulham, and Manchester United.
Harry Kane, Goncalo Ramos, and Victor Osimhen are on Erik ten Hag’s short list of strikers to sign this summer.
Manchester United would imagine themselves giving Gift Orban’s words to Belgian publication Het Laatste Nieuws should interest in him materialize.
“Playing in a big league,” he told the newspaper when asked what his ‘craziest football dream’ is. “At a club where I feel comfortable and where I play. The Premier League is my ultimate dream: Manchester United, Liverpool or Manchester City.
“I don’t really like Arsenal that much – it’s like they don’t want to win titles. They play and sell players – that’s it. I want to go somewhere where they win prizes. At Real Madrid they don’t have time for tiki-taka, there they just grab titles.”
