Osimhen joined the Great Danes from Sporting Charleroi on a five-year deal in the summer and has already established himself in Christophe Galtier’s team as the highest scoring player.
The 21-year-old has scored 13 goals in 25 Ligue 1 matches so far this campaign and is the third-joint top scorer in the French top-flight with PSG’s Neymar.
With interest growing in Osimhen across Europe, Lopez admitted that the club might not be able to control some factors when a lucrative offer comes after next season.
“Osimhen will be at Lille next season. Afterwards, there are factors that I cannot control, such as the fact that a club arrives and offers a salary six or eight times higher than what we can offer,” Lopez told RTL, via Foot Mercato.
“But I think that sometimes, it is better not to take a big salary and wait until next season.”
