Liverpool, Man Utd Lose Osimhen As Lille Receive Shock £75m Bid For The Nigerian

Osimhen Lille £75m Bid

Lille has received a lodgment of a £75m bid for Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen – who happens to be Liverpool and Man Utd target, according to reports.

Prior to the season being suspended due to the global pandemic, the Nigerian sat joint-fourth in the Ligue Un goalscoring charts, level with Neymar.

Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham have all also been linked but are unlikely to have been behind the reported £75m bid Lille have received for the 21-year-old.

French outlet Telefoot suggest an unnamed side has completely ignored the fact that literally no-one has any money by bidding for Osimhen’s services.

Liverpool are almost certain not to be the club in question after it emerged that the Reds had hoped to pursue Timo Werner and Houssem Aouar of Leipzig and Lyon respectively, but are now ‘budgeting for the loss of income’ and ‘now look virtually certain’ to spend nothing.

United can also perhaps be ruled out due to Ed Woodward’s recent comments concerning the transfer window.
