The Napoli talisman has been outstanding this season, and he has attracted interest from some of the top sides in Europe

Six-time Champions League winners Liverpool have joined rivals Manchester United, Arsenal, and Newcastle in the hunt for Victor Osimhen’s services this summer.

The Napoli talisman is fast building a reputation for himself in the Serie A as one of the deadliest attacking prodigies in Europe, and his displays have attracted a lot of suitors.

Osimhen has banged in 17 goals and assisted six in 29 Partenopeans, placing them in contention for the Scudetto.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Newcastle United have been linked with the former Lille hitman, but nothing concrete has materialized from those talks.

Liverpool was in the mix to secure the services of the 23-year-old striker when he was at Lille, but they were unable to lure him to Anfield.

However, according to the Express, the Reds have renewed their interest in the Nigeria international and could challenge their Premier League rivals to his signature this summer.

Liverpool could lose Salah this summer, with the Egyptian refusing to pen down a new deal with the Merseysiders, and Osimhen could be a viable replacement.

Nonetheless, Liverpool would have to cough out at least €80million to seal a deal.
