Nigeria and Napoli football sensation Victor Osimhen has been advised to move to Chelsea football club of England. Osimhen’s agent has been in talks with Chelsea for some time and the two parties are close to an agreement.
What you need to know:
Osimhen is one of the most exciting young strikers in the world, and Chelsea are desperate for a new number nine. The Blues have struggled to score goals in recent seasons, and Osimhen would be a major upgrade on their current options.
However, Napoli are reluctant to sell Osimhen, and they are likely to demand a huge fee for his services. It is believed that Chelsea would need to pay around £130m to sign the Nigerian international.
Despite the high price tag, Osimhen would be a worthwhile investment for Chelsea. He is a proven goalscorer at the highest level, and he is still only 24 years old. He has the potential to be a world-class striker, and he would be a major asset to Chelsea for many years to come.
It remains to be seen whether Chelsea will be able to sign Osimhen in January or the summer, but it is clear that he is a top target for the club.
