Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr has spoken about the future of Lille forward and rumoured Liverpool transfer target Victor Osimhen.
The 21-year-old has shone in Ligue 1 and could soon earn himself a big move to a major European side, if recent transfer gossip is anything to go by.
Le 10 Sport have claimed Osimhen is a target for Liverpool, and Rohr believes it would be a boost for both the player and the Nigerian national team if he were to move to a big club in the Premier League or the Champions League.
Liverpool tick both those boxes, so would undoubtedly be an ideal destination for Osimhen to further his career, and it seems the transfer would have the approval of Rohr.
Speaking to Channels Television, Rohr said: “Victor Osimhen will have a very big opportunity to go from Lille perhaps to the Premier League or Italy to a very, very big club.
“The motives behind Project Restart are possibly 100% financially driven rather than integrity driven.” – Which Premier League star said this? Click here to read more.
“This is a success for him but also for the Super Eagles to have players at Champions League clubs.
“If we have players playing at a very high level for their clubs, our level in the Super Eagles will be growing also.”
Liverpool fans will certainly hope Osimhen takes notice of these words, and that it can perhaps persuade him to accept an offer to move to Anfield if such an offer comes along.
