Lopez however admitted that the form of the striker has caught the attentions of the European elite clubs who can offer bigger salary than the French outfit.

“Osimhen will be in Lille next season. Afterwards, there are factors I cannot control, such as the fact that a club comes and offers a salary that is six or eight times more than we can offer.
