Chelsea Aims to Secure Victor Osimhen with Record-Breaking Contract: Striker Prioritizes Stamford Bridge Amid Interest from PSG and Saudi Clubs Despite Managerial Changes

Reporting live from Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea is preparing to make Victor Osimhen one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League as they aim to bring him to Stamford Bridge. Sources indicate that Osimhen is keen on joining Chelsea, with the club offering him a six-year contract, despite Mauricio Pochettino’s recent departure as manager. The Blues are leading the race for the striker, outpacing Paris Saint-Germain and Saudi clubs.


Victor Osimhen remains focused on his move to Chelsea, even after Mauricio Pochettino’s exit. Chelsea is currently ahead of Paris Saint-Germain and Saudi clubs in the pursuit of the striker.


After months of speculation, Pochettino left Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night. He believes he has set the stage for the club’s improvement next season. Chelsea’s leadership is now looking for a new manager to further enhance the team.


Pochettino is rumored to be a potential replacement for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United, while Chelsea is considering Kieran McKenna of Ipswich Town, a former Manchester United coach, for their managerial role.


Despite Pochettino’s departure, Chelsea’s transfer strategy remains largely unchanged. The club acknowledges the need for substantial investment in their attack, with Victor Osimhen being their top priority.


The Nigerian striker, whose release clause stands at €130m (£111m), is set to leave Napoli this summer with ambitions to play in the Premier League with Chelsea. TEAMtalk sources reveal that Osimhen has already informally agreed to the move, with only a few details of his seven-year contract left to finalize. Chelsea is ready to offer him a salary slightly above his current earnings at Napoli.
