Londoners Chelsea are ready to pay 100 million pounds to secure the card of Victor Osimhen. The Napoli bomber is one of the most sought-after players at the moment and competition for his services is expected to be quite strong during the summer transfer window.
Chelsea are just one of the teams that have expressed their interest in Osimha, as coach Graham Potter is looking for a typical center forward. The Italians of Napoli value the Nigerian card at 1 million pounds, but the president De Laurentiis knows very well that he can benefit even more, in the case of a financial war between European teams, for the services of Osimhen.
Despite Chelsea having expressed financial readiness, the Londoners are unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next season, which could make negotiations with the player difficult. Especially considering the interest of Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid.
In case the striker decides to join Chelsea, in all likelihood he will secure a starting place in the lineup. This and due to the fact that the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Stamford Bridge remains in doubt. Chelsea leaders are considering terminating the forward's contract at the end of the season, taking into account its high financial costs. Aubameyang earns around 300 pounds a week at the London Blues.
Meanwhile, Osimhen has scored 25 goals in 29 games for Napoli this season, including 4 goals in the Champions League. The Neapolitans, in all likelihood, will be declared champions in Serie A for this season, as they lead the championship with a full 19 points difference from the second place. Napoli also have the chance to triumph in the Champions League, as they will face Milan in the quarter-finals of the prestigious competition.
