The Nigeria international beat the duo of Benjamin Andre and Renato Sanches to the prestigious award. Andre finished second while Sanches placed third from the votes cast, according to a report on the club’s website.
Osimhen scored 18 goals and recorded six assists in 31 appearances across all competitions for Lille before the Ligue 1 season in France was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The former Wolfsburg striker finished the season as the fourth top scorer in the French Ligue 1 with 13 goals tied with Paris Saint Germain’s Neymar.
He also became the third player after Moussa Sow and Nicolas Pepe to have scored more goals for the club after 28 days of a Ligue 1 season in the last 40 seasons.
The 21-year-old joined Lille from Belgian club Sporting Charleroi last summer for £12m.
Osimhen was named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season.
