Renowned pundit Ally McCoist, alongside his fellow talkSPORT colleagues, took a moment to appreciate the exceptional qualities displayed by Victor Osimhen, the talented Nigerian striker currently playing for Napoli. The discussion arose in response to ongoing transfer rumors linking Osimhen with a potential move to Chelsea.
Victor Osimhen’s remarkable performances in the Serie A this season have captured the attention of football enthusiasts worldwide. With an impressive tally of 23 goals and four assists in 29 matches, Osimhen played a crucial role in propelling Napoli to their first title victory in 33 years.
The talkSPORT panel delved into Chelsea’s reported interest in securing the services of Victor Osimhen for the upcoming season, with new manager Mauricio Pochettino purportedly keen on bolstering the club’s attacking options. The speculation led to a lively conversation surrounding the potential transfer.
Amidst the discussion, Ally McCoist expressed his admiration for Osimhen, asserting that the powerful forward possesses qualities that evoke memories of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. McCoist’s praise exemplified his admiration for Osimhen’s style of play and highlighted the impact he could potentially have at Chelsea if the transfer were to materialize.

Osimhen certainly looks like he would be an asset for most top clubs, but it remains to be seen if he’ll want to leave Napoli after the success they’ve had this season, especially for a move to Stamford Bridge, where he wouldn’t get to play in the Champions League.
Still, Chelsea need to show ambition to get back to their best, and Osimhen could be ideal to give the Blues the upgrades they need on flops like Kai Havertz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
