Chelsea open talks to sign Napoli star, Victor Osimhen

Chelsea splash £68m for high-rated Nigeria striker as he arrives London to undergo medical on his possible move to Stamford Bridge

Victor Osimhen remains a priority for Chelsea despite Napoli insisting that the Nigerian forward is not for sale.

The Nigerian striker is one of the most sought-after players in Europe following his impressive record in front of goals last season.

The 24-year-old guided Napoli to their first Italian topflight title last season, scoring 26 goals plus four assists in 32 games.

He has been linked with Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Paris St Germain.

According to popular transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea however is prioritizing signing him this summer and will hold a meeting with Napoli.

With Pierre Emerick Aubameyang surplus to requirements and Romelu Lukaku not keen on returning to Bridge, Chelsea must sign a new center forward.

Osimhen who is loved by new Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochetino is valued around €150m by Napoli, but the club has reportedly lowered their asking price to around €120m.

Osimhen has two years left on his contract with reigning Serie A Champions.
