Liverpool are the reigning European champions and they are interested in Lille striker Victor Osimhen who has been one of the best attackers in the top flight of French football.
This is according to the report from the Daily Express which revealed that Lille striker Victor Osimhen is a strong target for both Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp.
Victor Osimhen has scored 10 goals and also provided four more assists in 16 starts in the French Ligue 1.
He joined Lille from Belgian side Charleroi in the summer after the French club lost the services of former talisman Nicholas Pepe who has moved for Lille to the Premier League.

Arsenal broke their transfer record to sign the aforementioned Pepe for around £72m this summer.
Victor Osimhen is now the talisman for Lille in his first season at the club.
He won the 2015 African Young Player of the Year Award after he helped Nigeria win the 2015 FIFA World Cup tournament.
The 21-year-old might find it difficult to displace the famed front trio at Liverpool.
The Liverpool trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have been consistent for the Reds in the last three years and it would be hard for Victor Osimhen to displace them.
