In-demand Osimhen gets a price tag as Lille confirm he has multiple offers

Lille owner Gerard Lopez has confirmed that there are multiple clubs interested in signing in-demand Victor Osimhen whom they already put a price tag on.

He revealed that clubs from England, Spain and Italy are all interested in signing the Nigerian striker who would not be sold cheap despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gerard Lopez told Sportsmail that only the club who pays a fee close to what Arsenal paid when they signed Nicolas Pepe last summer would get the former Wolfsburg striker.

‘There are multiple offers,’ he said. ‘We turned down one English and one Spanish offer this January transfer window.

‘There is a wide array [this summer] and I wouldn’t want to give the names of the clubs who are bidding but what I can tell you is that there are multiple [offers]. There are three championships that have clubs that have bid for him.’

Gerard Lopez who is asking any club willing to sign Victor Osimhen to pay around £72m that Arsenal paid to sign Nicolas Pepe would make more than £60m profit on the Nigerian striker who he signed for around £10m last summer.

‘I am not being a sales guy because last year people didn’t believe that we had the offers we had with [Nicolas] Pepe and it turns out we had multiple of them,’ he said.

‘Let me tell you with Osimhen, it is the same thing, whatever number you heard, the high number I have read is very much on the money of the offers that we have received. That’s where we are.’

Liverpool, Tottenham, United have all been linked with Victor Osimhen who was named alongside Neymar, Kylian Mbappe in the Ligue 1 player of the season.
