Chelsea is preparing an offer to sign Victor Osimhen from Napoli and outbid Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United in the race for the player. According to Italian media reports, Chelsea will contact Napoli next week and offer €150 million to secure the services of the Nigerian striker.
The player's agent had previously met with Napoli's president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, to discuss a possible contract extension and determine a price that would make them consider offers from other clubs. They agreed on a minimum asking price of €150 million.
According to “Sky Sport Italia,” Chelsea is not afraid of the demanded price and will reach out to Napoli to get a clearer idea of the player's stance. Tottenham and Manchester United have also shown interest in Osimhen for a considerable period.
The newspaper “Le Parisien” confirmed that Napoli is requesting €180 million to part ways with the 24-year-old striker.
The offers from Chelsea and other clubs indicate the ongoing pursuit of Osimhen, and it will be intriguing to follow the developments of this transfer in the coming period.
