Chelsea Transfer News: Chelsea is set to go all out for the £100m striker

Chelsea Transfer News: Football Insider reports that Victor Osimhen is a target for Chelsea this summer. To get the Napoli striker to Stamford Bridge, the Blues are prepared to spend £100 million. The 24-year-old has established himself as one of the game’s elite strikers, drawing interest from teams across the globe.

In the summer of 2020, Osimhen moved from LOSC Lille to play for the Naples-based club. For a then-record £78.5 million, he signed with the Italian club. He became the most expensive African footballer ever when he moved to Italy. And he has more than justified his high cost.

The 24-year-old has played in 91 games for the blue squad, contributing to 67 goals. After signing with Napoli, he has flourished. The Nigerian international has scored 25 goals in 29 games so far this season and has also contributed 5 assists.

Osimhen’s strong play has given the Italian team a leg up in Serie A. Napoli is now 19 points ahead of Inter Milan, which is in second position. They are contenders for the Italian league title for the first time in years. Victor Osimhen, who has scored 21 goals to lead Serie A in scoring, also deserves a lot of praise.

He has also been instrumental in the club’s run in the UEFA Champions League, where they will face archrivals AC Milan in the quarterfinals. His current deal with the team extends until the summer of 2025. Yet with so much attention elsewhere, he may be leaving this summer.

Chelsea Transfer News: To prepare for the next season, Chelsea is prepared to spend a fortune to secure the services of 24-year-old Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen

One of the teams interested in signing him is Chelsea. Graham Potter is pleading for the team to sign a new striker. They’ve been struggling to score as of late. It would boost their case immensely if they sign the 24-year-old.

The Blues are aware that it will be tough to sign Osimhen if they do not qualify for the UCL next season. They are, however, prepared to prove their financial might by offering £100 million for the Nigerian international player. Yet, with clubs like Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Real Madrid all vying for his talents, the battle might come down to the wire.
