The Catalan giants are planning for life without Suarez who will turn 33 in January and have shortlisted Osimhen among a host of others as his replacement.
The Nigerian international joined Lille from Royal Charleroi last summer but has seen his stock rise following a brilliant start in the French topflight. The 20-year-old has found the back of the net seven times in the French top division this season, while he also has a goal to his name in the Champions League.
This has got the attention of Europe’s top club with Barcelona leading the race. However, it remained to be seen if Les Dogues will be willing to part away with their prized asset after just a season.
