Chelsea on their way to sign Victor Osimhen in the upcoming window

Graham Potter

Despite significant spending in the summer, Chelsea may have anticipated a return to the Premier League’s top four under Mauricio Pochettino. However, their performances so far in the season have been inconsistent. With the team frequently taking one step forward and two steps backwards.

In an effort to potentially address their mid-table standing, Chelsea might once again consider spending in the upcoming transfer windows. The club could aim to address their longstanding issue with goalscoring, potentially gaining an edge over Arsenal in the process.

Chelsea is frequently in the headlines for their transfer activities. Given their owner Todd Boehly’s willingness to spend. The summer saw a significant overhaul of the squad with arrivals such as Nicolas Jackson, Moises Caicedo, Cole Palmer, and others. Despite these additions, Chelsea has faced challenges under Pochettino. As the January transfer window approaches, reports indicate that Chelsea might emerge as the winners. That is in the race to sign a solution to their most significant problem.

Will Chelsea emerge as the victors in the race for Victor Osimhen?

As per Football Transfers, Chelsea is currently leading the race to sign Napoli star Victor Osimhen. Reportedly, Arsenal has withdrawn from the competition as they are unwilling to match the forward’s release clause. The Blues, on the other hand, may be more inclined to meet Osimhen’s rumored price tag of €130-140 million (£113m-£122m). However, any potential move might have to wait until the summer.

Chelsea might still face competition from Real Madrid and interest from Saudi Arabia in their pursuit of Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, even after Arsenal decided to withdraw from the race.

Victor Osimhen could potentially be a significant upgrade for Chelsea, addressing a long-standing goalscoring issue that has persisted since the days of Diego Costa. The striker’s statistics support the notion of him being a solution to Chelsea’s scoring challenges.

As 2024 approaches, it will be intriguing to observe whether Chelsea makes a move for Osimhen. Regardless, the team needs to rediscover their form under Pochettino as soon as possible. The situation with Osimhen appears to be one to watch, with the Blues currently in a strong position.
