According to Lille owner Gerard Lopez, the French club would not sell Victor Osimhen for much lower they sold Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal last year.

Lille received £72 million from Arsenal for the transfer of Pepe, making him Arsenal’s record signing.

“There are multiple offers. We turned down one English and one Spanish offer this January transfer window,” Lopez told Daily Mail.

“There is a wide array [this summer] and I wouldn’t want to give the names of the clubs who are bidding but what I can tell you is that there are multiple [offers]. There are three championships that have clubs that have bid for him.

“I am not being a sales guy because last year people didn’t believe that we had the offers we had with [Nicolas] Pepe and it turns out we had multiple of them.

“Let me tell you with Osimhen, it is the same thing, whatever number you heard, the high number I have read is very much on the money of the offers that we have received. That’s where we are.”

Osimhen has scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for Lille this season.
