Victor Osimhen waiting for Chelsea to submit summer offer

Chelsea are reportedly keen on signing 25-year-old Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen from Serie A club Napoli in the summer transfer window.

According to TEAMtalk, Victor Osimhen is keen on a moving to Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window. The Napoli striker is waiting for Chelsea to submit their summer to the Serie A club.

Osimhen is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, and he should prove to be a superb acquisition for Chelsea. However, he will not come cheap, with his Napoli contract having a release clause worth £113 million.

The Nigerian international has 17 goals in all competitions, and he could solve Chelsea’s goalscoring problems next term. He would be a major upgrade on Nicolas Jackson. Chelsea signed the Senegalese international last summer to solve their goalscoring problems. But he has been quite mediocre and has not been able to find the back of the net consistently.

Meanwhile, Osimhen helped Napoli win the Serie A title last season, and he has been linked with clubs like Paris Saint-Germain as well. However, the 25-year-old, who has 17 goals this season, prefers to move to the Premier League and in particular, Chelsea. The development will come as a major boost for the Blues, and it remains to be seen whether they can get the deal done

Victor Osimhen could be an expensive addition

Osimhen is unlikely to be a cheap acquisition. He has a substantial £113 million release clause and it is fair to assume that Chelsea will have to pay up to get the deal done. Napoli will not want to sell him for a knock down price.

Chelsea will need to comply with the financial restrictions as well, and it will be interesting to see if they can afford to spend a substantial amount of money on him. They have failed to secure UEFA Champions League qualification, and that will be a major hit for their revenues.

The Blues have been disappointing in the last couple of seasons. A club of their status should be pushing for trophies regularly and competing in European football. They need quality players in order for that to happen, and a world class striker like Osimhen could transform them in the final third.
