The French domestic season was cut short last week as a possible way to deal with the spread of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – and now, the player who has been in high demand has been reported to prefer a Premier League move to the Serie A.
Juventus and Inter Milan have also been monitoring the 22-year-old and are strongly keen on his services, but the preference of the English league will come as a blow to the Seria A sides.
In a latest report by Daily Mail, Brendan Rodgers is also willing to join the race for the prolific goalscorer’s signature as he looks for a long term replacement for Jamie Vardy.
Lille are set to demand a fee of about £60 million for the club’s prized asset and could even go up depending on other factors.
Victor Osimhen is also expected to meet up with his entourage in the next few weeks to have a discussion regarding his future.
