Liverpool are prepared to lock horns with Chelsea in the transfer market, as both seek this insane goal machine who is worth around £95m.
When thinking about big spenders in the transfer window, Liverpool and Chelsea are seen as the polar opposites. The former are known to be more frugal while seeking the best deal in the transfer market, whereas price doesn’t seem to be an issue for the latter.
However, Liverpool have demonstrated that they have the funds to make some big deals. For example, they were prepared to spend upwards of £100m for players in the summer transfer window, they just didn’t push through with it or got outbid by other clubs.
Hopefully, the same fortune won’t follow in January, as Jurgen Klopp is set to battle Mauricio Pochettino for the signing of one of the best strikers in the world currently.
Liverpool join the race with Chelsea for Victor Osimhen
According to a report from The Daily Mail, Liverpool will join Chelsea in the race to sign Victor Osimhen from Napoli in the January transfer window. With the Nigerian striker subject to mistreatment from his own club, it’s becoming more and more obvious that he’ll get a big move away in January, after failing to do so in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal are also thought to be interested in Osimhen, but given their pursuit of Ivan Toney or Ollie Watkins, these seem to be more feasible options. But don’t rule the Gunners out.
Osimhen is valued at around £95m and it’s not difficult to see why. Following his impressive turnover of goals in the last title-winning season for Napoli, he’s had a similar start to this season. In eight appearances for Napoli, he has netted six goals. This isn’t a bad return for a player who is surely seeking a move away.
Where do you think Victor Osimhen will play next?
