Chelsea are keen on signing 24-year-old Napoli forward Victor Osimhen ahead of next season, and they are ready to offer Christian Pulisic in a part-exchange deal.
According to a report by Calciomercatoweb, Chelsea are fully focused on signing Victor Osimhen. The 24-year-old Napoli striker has been on fire in the ongoing season. His heroics have caught the eyes of quite a few big clubs from across Europe.
The Blues are already making moves to ensure that they land the Nigerian international in their ranks ahead of next season. People at the club are keen on having the 24-year-old at Stamford Bridge before the next season gets underway.
Osimhen joined the Serie A club back in the summer of 2020 from LOSC Lille. He has gone from strength to strength since joining them. The Nigeria international has featured in a total of 90 matches and has 65 goal contributions to his name.
The 24-year-old forward has taken the Serie A by storm in the ongoing season. He is leading the race for the Serie A Golden Boot with 19 goals to his name. Osimhen has 28 goal contributions in his 28 outings in all competitions this season, including 23 strikes.
His red-hot form in front of the goal has attracted the attention of a lot of clubs of late. While Osimhen’s current contract ends in the summer of 2025, he is likely to leave them in the summer in a big-money move.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are one of the clubs who are desperate to land the 24-year-old. They have spent a fortune on signing young talented players from across Europe since the arrival of their new co-owner Todd Boehly. And, despite all the talks around their transfer strategy, they will enter the next window with an intent to break the bank for Osimhen’s signatures.
The Blues are not just willing to break the bank for him, and they are also ready to offer Christian Pulisic as a part of the deal. The 24-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the Blues. He has played under 900 minutes in the ongoing season. And, Chelsea are ready to offer him in a part-exchange deal to sign Victor Osimhen.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have found it difficult to score goals of late. They are desperate to sign a new centre-forward and are willing to go all out to acquire Osimhen. However, it won’t be an easy task given the amount of interest from elsewhere. And, Napoli will have the final call on whether they want 24-year-old Pulisic to be a part of the deal for their 23-goal striker.
