Premier League leaders Liverpool have reportedly started talks with agent of Victor Osimhen over the possibility of luring the Nigerian striker to Anfield this summer.

According to the report by Le10 Sports, Liverpool are leading the race for them to sign the Super Eagles star who is also wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea.

Last summer, Victor Osimhen joined Lille from Belgium side Charleroi and the Nigerian has been impressive so far netting 18 goals in 38 games.

Recently, Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo called Victor Osimhen the future of Nigerian football and that statement has made him become target for more clubs in England.

Interestingly, Victor Osimhen has also made it clear that he would love to play in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are still waiting for them to know if the League will continue or the body in charge will cancel the whole season because of coronavirus.

Should the League continues, then Jurgen Klopp and his wards have the chance to win the title considering their points on the standings.

The France international has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer that could cost a staggering £250 million.

But with the growing reputation of Liverpool in the Premier League and Europe in the past ten months, the 21-year-old striker could consider joining the Anfield giants.
