Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen has snubbed interest from the Serie A and has his heart set on a move to the Premier League or LaLiga.

Liverpool have joined Tottenham in submitting a €70million bids for Lille striker.

The 21-year-old, brought in last summer to replace the Arsenal-bound Nicolas Pepe, has filled those shoes impressively with 18 goals in 38 games.

Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham have all been linked in recent months and the latter side reportedly emerged as the mystery club who submitted a £75million bid for the attacker.

Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss (via Area Napoli), Italian journalist Diego De Luca revealed that Liverpool have now followed suit with Spurs in submitting a sizeable bid for Osimhen.

“Victor Osimhen? He is a player-owned by Lille,” the journalist said. “The deal is very complicated because there are various teams on the player.
