Liverpool have taken final decision after approaching £94.6million highly rated forward Victor Osimhen
Uruguayan International Darwin Nunez, was acquired by Liverpool for a large fee from Benfica, but he was not he only striker under observation by the Reds.
According to reports in the Italian media, the Reds have also been interested in hiring the services of Nigerian international, Victor Osimhen
The African star has reportedly been connected with a move away from Napoli, but the high asking price is proving to be the primary barrier, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The report added that Liverpool was one of the teams that contacted Napoli to ask about Osimhen, according to the Italian news outlet. When the Merseyside learned how much the 23-year-old was valued, they made the decision not to proceed.
According to reports, the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona team has set the superstar striker’s price at £94.6 million. Although the price is somewhat negotiable, the Serie A team won’t let him go for less than £86 million.
Due to the player’s huge rating, teams like Bayern, Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Atletico, and even Arsenal decided to back off. However, CdS claims that the Magpies are still pushing to sign him.
He missed 13 games for Napoli in the previous season and was unable to compete in the AFCON after breaking his cheekbone, but when fit, the youngster is ruthless.
Osimhen made three Europa League starts and directly assisted in five goals. On the other side, he made 23 Serie A starts and was directly responsible for 19 goals.
Firmino, Jota, and Nunez are all present at Anfield, giving Jurgen Klopp adequate skill and depth at the No. 9/False No. 9 position. There is no need to bring in another center forward as a result.
