Lille owner confirms "multiple offers" for Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham target Victor Osimhen

Victor Osimhen has been the subject of multiple offers according to Lille president Gerard Lopez. Osimhen joined Lille last summer from Belgian side Charleroi and has attracted interested from several top clubs. The 21-year-old scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for the Ligue 1 side. Lopez, who allowed Nicolas Pepe to leave in a £72m deal last summer, admits he has already turned down two offers for Osimhen. "There are multiple offers," he told the Daily Mail. "We turned down one English and one Spanish offer this January transfer window. There is a wide array [this summer] and I wouldn't want to give the names of the clubs who are bidding but what I can tell you is that there are multiple [offers]. There are three championships that have clubs that have bid for him." Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Tottenham are interested but Lopez is seeking a similar fee to the one that saw Pepe leave for north London. He added: "I am not being a sales guy because last year people didn't believe that we had the offers we had with [Nicolas] Pepe and it turns out we had multiple of them. Let me tell you with Osimhen, it is the same thing, whatever number you heard, the high number I have read is very much on the money of the offers that we have received. That's where we are."
