Liverpool Wants To Snatch Victor Osimhen From Napoli
Reports have it that the Nigeria and current Lille striker, Victor Osimhen is an inch away from committing to Napoli but Liverpool seems to be ‘pushing’ its way to strikers heart.
The Reds’ CEO Peter Moore is reported to be putting pressure on Osimhen’s agent Cristiano Giuntoli to move out of the lane leading to Napoli which Osimhen’s French club Lille prefers..
According to the Italian journalist Ciro Venerato who provided an update on Osimhen’s situation:
“Yesterday there was a telephone contact for Osimhen, William D’Avila (Osimhen’s agent) called Cristiano Giuntoli, and this gives us hope,” Venerato told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, via Area Napoli.
“In recent days he always postponed signing a contract, despite having always responded with great grace. In England, there have been contacts, live meetings with the Liverpool chief scout.
“This agent is very close to the Liverpool CEO, who is pushing a lot for Osimhen, but the timing of the market is different from ours.
“The player continues to be of interest to the Reds, United and Tottenham, but the times are dilated.
“Napoli have the advantage because they have a definite agreement with Lille, his club are pressing him so that he accepts the blue shirt.
“As mentioned earlier, in England, the market is made at the end of the season, and the French club cannot wait.”
