Can Chelsea pull off the signing of Victor Osimhen?
Despite being prominently in discussion in recent weeks, the links between Victor Osimhen and Liverpool have subdued. According to the latest report from the Evening Standard, Osimhen is reportedly considering a move to Chelsea.
The outlet asserts that Chelsea has received positive signals indicating Victor Osimhen’s interest in a move to Stamford Bridge. However, any potential deal might need postponement until the summer. Napoli secured Osimhen for approximately £70 million in 2020. Hence, they are going to demand a fee well surpassing £100 million for his signature in 2024.
Chelsea is showing improvement under the management of Mauricio Pochettino this season. However, it’s worth noting that they currently lack a prolific goalscorer in their forward line.
