As one of Europe’s most sought after players, it’s been reported that Liverpool have reached an agreement with Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen.
Following a successful 2022/23 campaign with Napoli, where the African star inspired his team to an historic Serie A title win, Osimhen generated interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
The likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United were believed to be interested in the Napoli striker’s services.
Now though, according to Italian journalist Valter De Maggio, Liverpool have entered the chat to sign Osimhen and claimed that the Reds have agreed a deal with the 24-year-old.
“The parties [Napoli and Osimhen] had reached an agreement for the renewal, but then Calenda and Osimhen went back on their word. What happened? There was the inclusion of another club, from the Premier League. I’m talking about Liverpool,” De Maggio said, as per Football365.
“There would be frequent contacts, but I just learned something else: there would be agreements already reached.
“Let me clarify: the agreements would be between the Reds and the player, therefore they would not involve Napoli. I hope Laurentiis will be able to keep Victor Osimhen at least until June, but we can’t be sure.”
