The Nigerian forward took the Jupiler Pro League and Europe by storm this year after his arrival at KAA Gent from Stabæk in Norway, scoring 20 goals in 21 games in all competitions, as well as picking up two assets.
This led to quick interest from other clubs, including newly promoted Burnley, who will want to bolster their squad ahead of a likely tough season in the Premier League, and he could be costly, according to Sacha Tavolieri.
The 20-year-old could be the key to scoring goals, but despite only arriving for €3.3m in January, Gent value him far higher than that following his exploits, as the journalist explains those in charge at the club ‘want €25m’ for the striker.
Now, whether Burnley would ever go that high for the striker remains to be seen, but if they do, they will make some very happy in Belgium.

Les dirigeants Buffalos – qui veulent 25M€ pour Gift #Orban – estiment que la vente du nigérian pourrait assainir & assurer la viabilité du club. #JPL pic.twitter.com/IQKiqdDENs
