Chelsea splash £68m for high-rated Nigeria striker as he arrives London to undergo medical on his possible move to Stamford Bridge
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is allegedly keen on strengthening his squad ahead of the opened January transfer window landing several targets in the defensive and attacking departments.
The Blues are allegedly preparing for Romelu Lukaku’s exit following an explosive interview that he to be unhappy with the London based heavyweights and therefore a return to Italy might once again happen.
The UEFA champions league winners are arguably ready for his successor following claims that they are interested in Napoli’s striker Victor Osimhen with parent club already demanding a £68m offer for the Nigerian born forward.
Before his facial injury, Osimhen had already netted none goals in 14 apps for Napoli and therefore he’s likely to be the right target to replace misfiring Lukaku.
Meanwhile, the Blues are as well monitoring Barcelona’s defender Sergino Dest over a possible attempt of bolstering their wingback following injuries cases on Reece James.
