Victor Osimhen would cost Chelsea and Man United the same as Nicolas Pepe says Gerard Lopez
Victor Osimhen’s admirers have been cautioned they won’t have the option to sign the Nigeria International at little to no cost this summer by Lille owner Lopez.
Victor Osimhen has appreciated a breakthrough campaign in Ligue 1 and has pulled in enthusiasm from various heavyweight Premier League clubs, including the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Lille have earned a notoriety for being one of Europe’s most ground breaking clubs recently and have sold various players for huge benefits, including the likes of Nicolas Pepe who joined Arsenal the previous summer for a club-record £72million fee.
The coronavirus emergency is sure to majorly affect this present summer’s transfer market, however Lopez demands his club won’t be tormented into selling their prize asset for not as much as his reasonable worth.
He told the Daily Mail: ‘There are different offers. One English club was turned down and one Spanish offer this January transfer window.
There is a wide cluster this summer and I wouldn’t have any desire to give the names of the clubs who are offering however what I can let you know is that there are various [offers]. There are three titles that have clubs that have offered for him.
I’m not being a business fellow since a year ago people didn’t accept that we had the offers we had with Nicolas Pepe and it turns out we had numerous of them.
With Victor Osimhen, it is something very similar, whatever number you heard, the high number I have perused is particularly on target of the offers that we have gotten. That is the place we are.
Lille are also fighting off enthusiasm for their Brazilian centre half Gabriel who has been pulling in enthusiasm from Arsenal and Chelsea and Lopez uncovered a month ago that the 22-year-old is prepared for a move to a greater club.
He stated: ‘The facts confirm that he might want to proceed to have a go at something different. There might be another option we haven’t looked at, however he’s gotten various offers. I feel he’s more like one club than others, but nothing’s done at this point so we’ll see.
I feel he is among the main five prevailing defenders in Europe at the present time. His insights, which aren’t all around secured outside of France, shows that his rate for winning duels is quite incredible in a class that is amazingly physical.
