Premier League leaders, Liverpool, have reportedly opened talks with representatives of Nigerian international, Victor Osimhen over the possibility of coming to Anfield in the summer.
According to French media outlet, Le 10 Sport, the current European champions have started talks with the player’s representatives.
Osimhen, who won the 2015 U-17 World Cup Golden Boot, has been top on the list of many European clubs after his impressive performance for Lille in Ligue 1.
With his current form for Les Dogues, where he scored 13 goals from 27 league matches, the club may lose their most prized asset, Le 10 Sport wrote on its website.
“Courted by several large British clubs, Victor Osimhen is particularly interesting for Liverpool. His representatives have entered into discussions with the Reds.
“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,” the media outlet said.
Osimhen is also being linked with Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The Nigerian striker 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.
