That is according to TEAMtalk, which has reported that Osimhen himself is open to a transfer to Chelsea.
So, what is being reported about Chelsea and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen? Let’s take a look.
What’s the story?
Well, according to TEAMtalk, Chelsea are interested in signing Victor Osimhen from Napoli and are leading the race for the striker.
The former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners are reportedly at the “front of the queue” for Osimhen.
The relationship between the striker and Napoli is strained over controversial TikTok videos.
Although Napoli will not sell the 24-year-old in the January transfer window, they could be forced to cash in on him at the end of the season.
According to TEAMtalk, Napoli would want £120 million for Osimhen.
Chelsea are reportedly ready to pay that sum, although the Blues would have to sell players to afford the transfer and avoid falling foul of Financial Fair Play regulations.
The report has noted that Osimhen himself is open to a transfer to Chelsea and “would be interested in a conversation” with the Blues.
Victor Osimhen would be a brilliant signing for Chelsea
In my opinion, Napoli striker Victor Osimhen would be a superb signing for Chelsea.
I believe that the Nigerian would be the perfect number 9 for the Blues.
Osimhen has developed a lot at Napoli and is now one of the best strikers in the world.
Even Liverpool are keen on the former Lille star.
According to former Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun, who is now at AS Monaco, the Napoli star is “world class”.
Osimhen scored 26 goals and gave four assists in Serie A and scored five goals in the UEFA Champions League last season.
The striker has scored six goals in seven Serie A starts for Napoli this season.
