Liverpool have held talks with the representatives of Lille forward Victor Osimhen, according to a report in France.
French media outlet Le10Sport, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Reds have entered the race to sign the highly-rated striker ahead of the summer transfer window.
Osimhen has been linked with moves to Chelsea, Leicester City and Manchester United in the last few days but Le10 believe that it is the Reds who are the favourites to sign the 21-year-old.
Before the season was halted, the Nigerian star was in great form for Lille, having scored 18 goals whilst also assisting a further six for his teammates.
Lille are reportedly asking for £60m for Osimhen, who is seemingly in the radar of a few clubs around Europe.
