Liverpool will need a major overhaul in the upcoming summer if they don’t want to fall behind their direct competitors.

Victor Osimhen is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe this season. The 24-year-old has scored 23 goals in 24 matches across all competitions, playing a significant role in Napoli’s lead in Serie A and their chances of winning the 2022/2023 season.

Thanks to his impressive form, Osimhen has caught the attention of many top clubs across Europe. Manchester United is said to have identified Osimhen as a potential target as they continue to search for a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Deep-pocketed teams like Chelsea are also reportedly interested in the Nigerian international and are said to be willing to pay “any price” to sign him in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Teams like Arsenal, Newcastle United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also said to be interested in Osimhen. Most recently, according to Fichajes, Liverpool is the latest name to join the race for the Nigerian international’s signature.

Last summer, Jurgen Klopp’s side splashed out on striker Darwin Nunez, who moved to Anfield from Benfica. With Darwin Nunez fee of £85 million, it is a deal that could rise to a club record. Liverpool then further bolstered their attack by signing Cody Gakpo for £37 million from PSV Eindhoven in the January transfer window.

However, neither of these signings has lived up to expectations. In addition, the “Reds” may consider increasing their interest in Osimhen this summer if Roberto Firmino decides to leave the club, as his contract with the club expires in June.

If Liverpool wants to secure the services of Victor Osimhen, they will have to spend a huge sum of no less than £100 million, as the player is under contract with Napoli until 2025. You can see more information about Liverpool transfer done deal today.

In addition, Napoli Chairman De Laurentiis has also stated that Osimhen is not for sale. “I can tell you that Osimhen is not for sale. Our players are in demand, but I’m not selling anyone. We don’t have any debts.”

In the match against Spezia on February 5th, Victor Osimhen executed a jump with a height of 2.58 meters. This statistic helped him surpass the record of Cristiano Ronaldo. In December 2019, CR7 jumped 2.56 meters to score a header against Sampdoria.
