Chelsea Revives Interest in Victor Osimhen

Chelsea has renewed its pursuit of Nigerian international Victor Osimhen, aiming to bring the striker to Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to Caught Offside, Osimhen is highly sought after this transfer window, and Chelsea remains eager to secure his services. However, the reported €130 million release clause set by Napoli could complicate any potential deal.

The 24-year-old has emerged as one of the world’s most formidable strikers, and Chelsea is in need of a new forward to bolster their attack. Last season, Nicolas Jackson did not meet fans’ expectations, and Romelu Lukaku, who spent the 2023-24 season on loan at AS Roma, is no longer part of Chelsea’s plans.

Contrary to some recent rumours, Caught Offside reports that Arsenal is not pursuing Osimhen. The striker and Napoli have agreed that he could leave the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium this summer.

Interestingly, Napoli is considering Lukaku as a potential replacement for Osimhen, which could benefit Chelsea in their efforts to sign the prolific striker.
