Transfer: Chelsea keen on Osimhen

Chelsea have identified Napoli forward Victor Osimhen as a priority target to boost the club’s attack this summer.

The interest appears to be mutual, with Osimhen reportedly open to the idea of joining the Blues.

Although Napoli have been struggling in the 2023/24 season, Osimhen, 25, has once again showcased his remarkable talent in the Italian league, scoring 11 times in 17 Serie A matches, building on a fantastic 2022/23 season during which he scored 31 goals in various competitions to help them win their first Serie A title in 33 years.

The Nigerian striker, who is tied to Napoli until December 2026, is reportedly looking to make a switch this summer amid interest from Chelsea.

Negotiations for Osimhen seem to be promising for Chelsea, as the player himself is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are ready to activate Osimhen’s release clause, although discussions with Napoli over the payment structure remain.

Additionally, Paris Saint-Germain is another club showing strong interest in acquiring Osimhen’s services.

However, the French giants are still undecided regarding the deal following Rafael Leao’s decision to stay put with Milan.

The Portuguese star recently suggested that he was happy with the Rossoneri and had no intention of leaving ahead of the summer transfer window, seemingly taking himself off the market amidst interest from clubs across the continent including PSG.

The Parisian giants are fans of the Napoli star but it’s still unclear if they’ll pull the trigger on a deal in the summer, already having Randal Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos in the squad.

Osimhen recently signed a contract extension with Napoli and has a €130m release clause in his deal
