Napoli bomber Victor Osimhen is open to a possible move to Chelsea. However, the London club may be forced to wait until next summer to make a move for the striker. The player has described former Chelsea star Didier Drogba as one of his footballing idols, and Osimhen is also intrigued by the idea of playing Premier League football.
The president of Napoli, Aurelio De Laurentiis, is known as a very difficult negotiator and the Italian estimates Osimhen's card at 100 million pounds. This is one of the reasons why a departure in January is highly unlikely to happen. Napoli is also going through a difficult season compared to the last one, when they were declared champions. The team is competing for a place in the Champions League, and Osimhen is a very important player to achieve this goal.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have yet to decide whether to make a move for a striker in January. The Blues' chiefs are expected to agree the plan at the end of December, and much will depend on the form of the strikers Chelsea currently have at their disposal. It is about Nicolas Jackson, Christopher Nkunku and Armando Broja.
Jackson scored a hat-trick against Tottenham, as well as a goal against Manchester City, and seems to be slowly starting to find his best form. Nkunku, on the other hand, is expected to return very soon after the injury received at the beginning of the season. Meanwhile, Broja has also had fluctuations with recent injuries, and has not fully convinced with the level presented on the green field. What is certain is that if Osimhen lands one day at Stamford Bridge, he will be a starter in Pochettino's team.
