Chelsea make massive Victor Osimhen offers to outbid Manchester United

Chelsea

Victor Osimhen of Napoli will be signed by Chelsea in the summer transfer window. Premier League rivals Manchester United, and Chelsea are willing to pay him a hefty fee to do it. In 26 games across all competitions so far this season, the Nigerian striker has scored 21 goals. He has contributed four more assists, propelling Napoli to the top of the Serie A standings.

Ten Hag decided to end Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract before the World Cup in Qatar. United has been extensively connected with a transfer for Osimhen. Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to remain at Stamford Bridge when he returns from his loan at Inter Milan. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz have both struggled to find consistency in front of goal this season. So the Blues are in need of a reliable number nine this summer.

Graham Potter will have more choices in attack. Christopher Nkunku has signed to a pre-contract to join Chelsea at the end of the current campaign. Osimhen might be able to join the team. Because Boehly is expected to let go of a number of first team players. Players like Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech, though it will take a sizable offer to entice him away from Naples.

Two transfer windows since the Boehly and Clearlake Capital consortium completed a £4 billion takeover at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has already spent over £600 million on new acquisitions. The attack has been strengthened. Additions of Mykhailo Mudryk, Raheem Sterling, Noni Madueke, and Joao Felix has made the team strong on paper. But the Blues have only scored 24 goals in 25 Premier League games this season.

Chelsea desperate to sign a striker

Furthermore, it is obvious that the Blues need a potent striker, and Osimhen would very definitely fill that role. Given his height, quickness, and physicality, the Nigerian is among the finest finishers in Europe this season. He possesses all the qualities necessary to succeed in the Premier League.

Boehly is willing to quadruple Osimhen’s current €4.5 million (£3.9 million) contract. Osimhen’s price tag has been raised to €130 million (£115 million) by Napoli. This is an effort to extend his stay with the club before entering the last year of his current deal.

According to the report, Erik ten Hag has made acquiring Osimhen his top goal this summer. United are in severe need of a new striker. Marcus Rashford has stepped up since Ronaldo left Old Trafford. It appears that United and Chelsea may have to spend a British transfer record price. They really want to bring Osimhen to their team.
