Osimhen will meet with Lille’s officials in the next two weeks to discuss his future at the club. The Nigeria international has been linked with a host of clubs in Europe, and he is set to decide if he’ll be staying with Christophe Galtier’s side beyond this season.

Recently, it was reported that Lille received an 85m euros bid for the former Wolfsburg striker from an unnamed club.

However, the former Royal Charleroi hotshot could still yet leave the Stade Pierre-Mauroy this summer, and he’s set to meet with Lille’s board in the next two weeks.

The Nigeria international only joined Les Dogues this season, but he has settled in brilliantly. With 18 goals and six assists in 38 games for Lille, Osimhen is one of the best strikers in Europe’s top five leagues this season.

Liverpool and Chelsea have been encouraged in their pursuit of Lille striker.

La Voix du Nord reports Osimhen will reject offers from Italy as he holds out for a transfer to the Premier League, reports in France suggest.

The Nigerian has shot to prominence after scoring 18 goals for the Ligue 1 outfit in 2019/20 before the coronavirus brought a premature end to the French campaign.

Liverpool are thought to be tracking Osimhen while Manchester United and Chelsea have also been mentioned as admirers.
