According to a report from Calcio Mercato, Liverpool is determined to pursue Victor Osimhen. The future of the Nigerian striker has become a big question mark at the present time. According to Italian media, Osimhen has not agreed to sign a new contract.
Osimhen’s salary is about 4.5 million euros per season. The 24-year-old star wants to receive double the amount of 9 million euros per season in the new contract.
Last season, Osimhen played sublimely, making a great contribution to Napoli’s journey to winning the Serie A championship after more than 30 long years of waiting. The 24-year-old star owns 31 goals in all competitions.
Currently, Osimhen is out due to a hamstring injury. According to the pasta country press, Liverpool has contacted Osimhen directly many times. The main competitor to The Kop in this deal is Chelsea.
The London team needs to strengthen their attack by bringing in a high-class center forward. Osimhen emerged as a possible target for the Blues.
To successfully own Osimhen, Chelsea needs to put enough weight on the negotiating table if they want to convince Napoli to release him.
