The French club has now told the Reds they must cough out about €80m for the Nigerian forward French League giants Lille are reportedly willing to allow Nigerian star Victor Osimhen to join Liverpool this summer provided they meet his valuation.
The Reds have been linked with a move for the Super Eagles striker and football transfer expert Duncan Castles claims they have established contact with the Ligue 1 side. Osimhen only joined Lille from Belgian side Sporting Charleroi last summer and he recorded 13 league goals in 28 appearances in his debut season.
"The information I have is that Liverpool have been in contact with Lille about their Nigeria center-forward Victor Osimhen," Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.
"He's attracting attention from a lot of clubs and has been fulfilling the potential he showed when he won the Golden Boot at the World Youth Cup a few years ago, scoring 10 goals in that particular tournament in Chile.
"They are open to selling him this summer but only if the market provides them with the right price. "And they're very conscious that this may well not be the transfer window to sell a player of his talent. That will factor into their thinking.
