As Napoli prepare for life after the departure of the highly-rated forward, a new Premier League bidder is ready to compete with other interested teams for the transfer of Victor Osimhen.
Partenopei chief Aurelio De Laurentiis recently expressed confidence that Osimhen will remain in Naples, but the arrival of yet another suitor is expected to complicate matters.
Following the departure of Roberto Firmino, Jürgen Klopp wants a proven striker to lead the frontline alongside Darwin Nunez, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Liverpool are apparently looking for an aggressive poacher who prefers to play vertically, and Osimhen fits the bill nicely.
Liverpool has already made initial contact with the player’s agent, Roberto Calenda, who is willing to negotiate.
Despite the growing interest, De Laurentiis wishes to extend Osimhen’s stay in the south of Italy. The other clubs in the transfer race are PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester United.
Napoli are aggressively looking for a replacement for the €150 million man, and have four options in mind.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Rasmus Hojlund of Atalanta, Jonathan David of Lille, Beto of Udinese, and Boulaye Dia of Salernitana are all potential options.
