Chelsea Football Club has set their sights on securing the services of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, placing him at the forefront of their summer shopping list. The incoming Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino, believes that recruiting a world-class No.9 is crucial for the club’s resurgence at the top of the Premier League table.
While Pochettino would relish a reunion with his former player Harry Kane, he acknowledges that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is highly unlikely to entertain the idea of selling to their fierce London rivals. As a result, the focus has shifted to Victor Osimhen, who has impressed with his performances at Napoli.
Chelsea’s financial stability, especially when compared to the uncertain future ownership of Manchester United, puts them in a stronger position to meet Napoli’s hefty £125 million asking price for Osimhen. The Blues are determined to make a significant investment to bolster their squad ahead of the upcoming season.
The pursuit of Osimhen raises questions about the future of Joao Felix, who is currently on loan from Atletico Madrid. The Portuguese forward has expressed his desire to stay at Chelsea, showcasing glimpses of his talent throughout the season. However, owner Todd Boehly remains unconvinced and reluctant to meet Atletico’s valuation of £90 million to secure Felix on a permanent basis.
As Chelsea intensifies their efforts to strengthen their attacking lineup, negotiations for Osimhen will undoubtedly take center stage in the coming weeks. The Nigerian striker has garnered attention with his goal-scoring prowess and potential to make a significant impact on the Premier League stage.
Chelsea supporters eagerly await updates on the potential acquisition of Osimhen, hoping that his arrival will boost the team’s competitiveness and reignite their pursuit of silverware.
