Liverpool have reportedly reached an agreement with Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.
Over the last few seasons, Osimhen has often been linked with a move away from Italian Serie A champions Napoli.
Premier League clubs such as Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have all been linked with a move for the 24-year-old.
However, it has been claimed that Liverpool have reached an agreement with Osimhen ahead of a possible transfer.
According to Italian journalist Valter De Maggio, via Area Napoli, Liverpool have an agreement with the player.
It has been claimed that Osimhen and his agent, Roberto Calenda have decided not to sign a contract extension due to interest from the Anfield club.
De Maggio said: “The parties had reached an agreement for the renewal, but then Calenda and Osimhen went back on their word. What happened? There was the inclusion of another club, from the Premier League. I’m talking about Liverpool.
“There would be frequent contacts, but I just learned something else: there would be agreements already reached. Let me clarify: the agreements would be between the Reds and the player, therefore they would not involve Napoli. I hope Laurentiis will be able to keep Victor Osimhen at least until June, but we can’t be sure.”
Osimhen played a crucial role last season as Napoli won the Serie A title, the Nigerian scored 31 goals and assisted five during a brilliant season.
So far in the 23/24 campaign, Osimhen has scored six goals in 10 games as Napoli currently sit in fifth place in the Serie A league table.
