Klopp wants Osimhen to replace Firmino

Liverpool is reportedly considering making a move for Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen as a potential replacement for Roberto Firmino.

Firmino has been a key player for the Reds since he arrived at the club in 2015, playing a massive role in the team’s recent success in the League and Europe.

However, with the imminent arrival of Luis Diaz, the Brazilian or Sadio Mane will likely leave in the summer, considering the model of Liverpool owners, FSG.

And with that in mind, Liverpool is looking at replacing one of these two players, who are now in the 30 age range, with a youngster player like Osimhen.

According to Fichajes via Liverpool Echo, Osimhen, who is now 23, is said to be on the Reds’ radar as an option for Firmino should the Brazilian leave this summer.

It is not the first time Osimhen would be linked with a move to Anfield. The Reds looked in his direction when he was at Lille, but the Nigerian eventually sealed an African record move to Napoli.

But if the Reds want the Nigerian, they will have to pay the top dollar for his services as Osimhen still has three years left on his contract in Naples.

Liverpool will also have to battle Arsenal and Newcastle, who are also said to be interested in bringing Osimhen to the Premier League.
