Ligue 1 outfit Lille have reportedly set a steep asking price for their free scoring forward Victor Osimhen, who has been linked with Liverpool, Real Madrid and some other European clubs going into the summer transfer window. 

The future of the 21-year-old Nigerian forward in France became uncertain after he has made a major impact in his first season at Lille, netting 17 goals in all competitions for the club.  

The club were initially reluctant to lose a key player like Osimhen in the middle of the campaign. However, with tempting offers coming more often, they have now resolved to accept a bid that met their asking price of €50M for the attacker.This was according to reports from the French media outlet BuzzSport.fr.
​​​Lille made a huge profit after the sale of Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal last summer and signed Osimhen as the replacement for the attacker. They look likely to gain more with Osimhen.
