According to a report from Football.London, it has been suggested that Chelsea are harbouring aspirations of making an audacious move to acquire Napoli striker Victor Osimhen in the near future as they persist in their quest for an additional forward in the attacking department.

Osimhen’s Outstanding Start in Italian Football This Season

Osimhen has kicked off the current campaign in spectacular fashion, delivering several productive performances for Napoli in the attacking third. The 24-year-old has found the back of the net on three occasions in just three league outings for his Naples-based team this season.

The Nigerian sensation has performed admirably as the spearhead of the attack, and his contributions are noteworthy, with impressive averages of 6.0 shots, 1.7 key passes, and 0.7 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A. Furthermore, he has displayed good distribution skills in the opponent’s half, boasting a pass completion rate of 78.6% in top-flight football (statistics sourced from whoscored).

Osimhen’s contract with Napoli extends until the summer of 2025. Consequently, Chelsea may have the opportunity to acquire him at a discounted price when this season concludes.

Can Pochettino Bring Him To Chelsea?

Osimhen possesses the ability to carve out space for himself, allowing him to take accurate shots at goal. He has established himself as a lethal finisher in front of the opponent’s net throughout the previous season. Standing tall at 1.86 meters, Osimhen utilizes his strong physique effectively to win aerial duels in the attacking third.

The Nigerian international also excels in creating scoring opportunities for his fellow forwards and is proficient at making powerful runs behind the opposition’s defensive line. Currently, Osimhen is in exceptional form, making it a logical choice for the Blues to pursue him next summer.

The Nigerian sensation has the potential to significantly bolster Mauricio Pochettino’s offensive arsenal. At the age of 24, Osimhen’s best years are still ahead of him. Consequently, he could be an enticing prospect for the West London club to contemplate in 2024. Nonetheless, the success of his transition to English football will only become evident with time.
