Super Eagles striker, Victor Boniface attracting Premier League interest

An unknown Premier League club have reportedly made a verbal inquiry for Bayer Leverkusen and Super Eagles striker Victor Boniface. 



The 23-year-old has impressed in his first season at Leverkusen having scored 16 goals in just 23 appearances in all competitions for Xabi Alonso’s side as they sit 10 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.



Sky in Germany claim Leverkusen want to keep the Nigerian but would be willing to talk to clubs if offers of more than £47.2m (€55m) are made this summer.



Leverkusen signed Boniface from Belgian side Union Saint-Gilloise for a reported fee of £17.2m (€20m) in July.



Boniface is yet to make an appearance in 2024 after having adductor surgery in January but has returned to training in the hope of playing his first game since December 20.
