Chelsea is reportedly considering a surprising move to acquire Napoli’s Victor Osimhen by offering two of their own players as part of the deal. This potential transfer could reshape both teams’ rosters significantly.

Chelsea is reportedly ready to make a bold move in their pursuit of Napoli’s Victor Osimhen by offering two players as part of the deal. Despite a lackluster season, Chelsea is determined to strengthen their squad for the future.

Last year, Chelsea splurged on signings like Moises Caicedo, Nicolas Jackson, and Christopher Nkunku, but their performance has fallen short, leaving them in eighth place in the Premier League standings, 16 points adrift of the top four.

Looking ahead to the summer transfer window, reports suggest Chelsea is reviving their interest in Osimhen. Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio claims that Chelsea is prepared to negotiate a deal worth €80 million to €90 million with Napoli.

To sweeten the offer, Chelsea is willing to part ways with Romelu Lukaku, a seasoned striker, and a promising young player in exchange for Osimhen. The 25-year-old Nigerian forward has attracted attention from various top clubs in Europe due to his impressive performance, bagging 16 goals and four assists in 29 appearances for Napoli this season.

Former Chelsea star John Obi Mikel believes there’s a genuine desire from Osimhen to join Chelsea, citing the player’s admiration for the club and Nigerian players who have donned the Chelsea jersey in the past. However, Osimhen’s options aren’t limited, with interest also coming from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

As Chelsea prepares for their upcoming match against West Ham United, the club’s focus seems to be not just on current performances but also on securing key signings to bolster their squad for the challenges ahead.
