Tuttosport: Good relations could see Milan beat Napoli and Liverpool in race for Lille star

By Oliver Fisher -

Lille star Victor Osimhen is among the names that AC Milan have on their wish list as they look to reinforce their attacking department this summer.

That is according to Thursday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews), who claim that the Nigeria international is indeed a target for the Rossoneri, who are looking to sign a striker or possibly too given the doubts over the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It would be a complex negotiation because Napoli are also pressing hard for the player’s signature, however the good relations with the French club – as shown by the Rafael Leao operation – could favour Milan.

Calciomercato.com reported last month that Osimhen is a player Milan are watching, while it has been suggested that the Nigeria international could command a fee of up to €60m this summer after a season in which he bagged 18 goals and six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.

Mundo Deportivo (via MilanLive) claimed that Milan are not the only team keen on the 21-year-old, as Premier League trio Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are also credited with interest.
