Frank Leboeuf predicts Nigerian Superstar to Reject Chelsea

Real Madrid

Frank Leboeuf admits he would love former Chelsea to go and sign the Nigerian Superstar. Victor Osimhen could still reject them.

The No. 9 striker spot is still a cause of contention at Stamford Bridge, as Armando Broja and Nicolas Jackson, two young Blues players, are still under evaluation.
Thus, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to hear transfer whispers tying Chelsea to the acquisition of a new striker.

The 24-year-old Victor Nigerian Superstar has regularly been mentioned as a possible transfer to Stamford Bridge.

Osimhen of Napoli, according to ESPN commentator Frank Leboeuf, would be the perfect fit for Mauricio Pochettino’s team. He did, however, raise the possibility that the player would reject the transfer.

“Osimhen would be a very good target,” Leboeuf said to ESPN when asked who he would sign for Chelsea.

“You need to create a list of available and willing strikers before attempting to sell players in order to purchase a striker. I doubt you will locate a partner.

“Chelsea is not playing in the Champions League. Chelsea is 12th in the league. Which top strikers would like to come to play for Chelsea right now? None.

“…Do you really think that Nigerian Superstar or anybody else can help Chelsea sort all problems out?”

According to recent reports from 90min, Chelsea is planning to pursue Osimhen in the summer. It would apparently take at least £112 million to wrest him away from Napoli.

During a prosperous spell in Italy with Napoli, he has scored 66 goals in 116 games; nonetheless, we would want to see him prove himself in England’s top level.

Although Nigerian Superstar appears to be the kind of elite striker Chelsea has been longing for, we acknowledge that if the squad continues to struggle, it could get harder to entice these players to West London.

The Blues will see a significant difference if they can identify a striker who can score 20 goals or more per season.
