Liverpool Open Nigeria’s Osimhen Transfer Talks



Premier League giants, Liverpool, have reportedly held talks with Lille striker Victor Osimhen to begin the process of signing him in the summer transfer window.

The 2015 U-17 World Cup Golden Boot winner has been a target for many European clubs after his impressive performance for Lille in Ligue 1.

Osimhen joined the French outfit from Sporting Charleroi for €12m in August 2019 and still has another four-and-a-half-year left on his contract.

The talented young striker, who is also being monitored by Manchester United and Chelsea, according to reports in France, has scored 18 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions, since arriving from Belgian club RSC Charleroi last summer.

The 21-year-oldgoal scoring abilities have attracted the attention of Liverpool, Chelsea, United and AC Milan.

With his current form for Les Dogues, where he scored 13 goals from 27 league matches, the club may lose their most prized asset and French media outlet Le 10 Sport claims the current European champions have started talks with the player’s representatives.

“Courted by several large British clubs, Victor Osimhen is particularly interesting for Liverpool. His representatives have entered into discussions with the Reds,” the website wrote.

“According to our information, discussions have recently opened between Liverpool and representatives of Victor Osimhen with the objective of laying the foundations for a first contractual proposal if the Reds ever send a transfer offer to LOSC (Lille).

“Liverpool are thus taking a position on a file which has already changed considerably in recent months.”

Osimhen is also being linked with Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
