Liverpool have made a bold move in their quest to land highly desired Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen from Lille.
The Reds have opened talks with the former Charleroi forward’s representatives, according to reports.
Osimhen hit the ground running in France with 18 goals in 38 games across all competitions, with 13 of them in 27 Ligue 1 games.
The French club currently value the 21-year-old at £60million if he has to leave in the transfer window.
Osimhen is desired by Chelsea, Arsenal, Inter Milan and Juventus. Liverpool have now made a giant step by opening talks with his agents and now lead the chase for his signature.
The former Wolfsburg forward has expressed his desire to play in the Premier League but the Nigerian international has also made it clear that he is not willing to join a big club just to add up the numbers of their personnel. He wants to be guaranteed game time.
