Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, is keen on signing Nigerian Star, Victor Osimhen from Lille during the January transfer window.
Osimhen has scored 13 goals in all competitions for Lille so far this season and four goals in nine appearances for the Super Eagles.
The 21-year-old has also been linked with other top premier league clubs with Tottenham Hotspur prominent among them.
But it is also understood that Lille will likely not let him go during the January transfer window as Osimhen is under contract for another four-and-a-half years after signing a five year contract with the Ligue 1 side.
Osimhen’s goals have helped Lille move to fourth position in Ligue 1 with 14 points behind leaders, Paris Saint- Germain.
Meanwhile, Klopp has reportedly been interested in signing PSG striker, Kylian Mbappe.
But the Germain has debunked any hope of signing the France International in January transfer window.
“Buying this calibre of player is difficult. I don’t see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG. ” Klopp said.
“I don’t see any club, that is how it is. And we are involved in the clubs that cannot do it. It is as easy as that.
“OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him. What a player he is.
“But it is about the money of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story.”
