Osimhen earned his move to France after scoring 20 goals for Belgian side Charleroi in 2018-19, and is likely to again be on the move when summer business starts.The forward already has an option to consider, with Telefoot reporting that an unnamed club have offered £75 million, including bonuses for the player.Liverpool is reportedly among the teams keeping an eye on the forward, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah for up to six weeks next January during the Africa Cup of Nations next year, although the Reds are not expected to spend big this summer.Chelsea is also said to be monitoring the striker after he scored a header against Frank Lampard’s side in the Blues’ 2-1 victory at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in the Champions League group stages.Lille failed to register a win during Osimhen’s first ever Champions League campaign, but the youngster managed two goals. The west London side have good memories from negotiations with Lille, after beating Europe’s elite for the signing of Eden Hazard from the French side back in 2012.Inter Milan, Manchester United and Tottenham are all also reportedly keeping an eye on the youngster.It is undecided how French football chiefs will decide on European qualification for next season, but if the table is taken as it stands Lille would drop into the Europa League next term, which could influence Osimhen’s decision.Tags: CoronavirusLigue 1TelefootVictor Osimhen
