Chelsea: Victor Osimhen summer move being eyed

Chelsea: Victor Osimhen summer move being eyed - Chelsea News

Chelsea are already eyeing a summer move for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, according to The Mirror.

The Lowdown: Osimhen profiled

The 24-year-old is an out-and-out striker who appears to be at the top of his game, holding a career-high €70m (£62.9m) Transfermarkt valuation.

The Nigeria international has been in fine form this season, contributing to more than a goal per game in Serie A. He is under contract with Napoli until 2025, but it looks as if a summer move to Stamford Bridge could be on the cards.

The Latest: Chelsea linked with Osimhen

The Mirror shared a transfer update regarding Osimhen on Saturday afternoon, describing him as ‘one of the most in-demand players in Europe’.

They reported that Chelsea have joined Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain the race for his services despite already having Christopher Nkunku lined up for the summer, with Napoli wanting £100m for Osimhen.

The Verdict: Chelsea need him

Despite Todd Boehly going into transfer overdrive since taking over at Stamford Bridge, with £566m spent in the two transfer windows on his watch, there are still question marks when it comes to a reliable centre-forward, as highlighted by Jamie Carragher following the 0-0 draw against Fulham on Friday.

Therefore, signing a prolific forward like Osimhen could be a brilliant piece of business and possibly the final piece of the jigsaw, with Chelsea scoring just 22 times in 21 Premier League games so far this season.

Hailed as a ‘goal-scoring machine‘ by journalist Josh Bunting, Osimhen scored twice in Napoli’s 3-0 win at Spezia on Sunday to take his tally to 16 goals in 17 Serie A matches this term. With that in mind, he could certainly take the Blues to the next level in the final third alongside Nkunku if the two are to be partnered together in west London.
