Chelsea will reportedly have to pay around €150 million to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer.

The Nigerian has been a revelation for Napoli this campaign, bagging 26 goals from 31 appearances in all competitions.

It is now claimed by Gazzetta dello Sport that he could move to the Premier League in the next transfer window.

However, he will be a costly acquisition as Napoli won't sell him for less than €150 million during the summer.

Chelsea are one of the front-runners to sign the former Lille man and they are reportedly looking for an early deal.

Manchester United have also been linked with the highly-rated striker but they have Harry Kane as their main priority.

Hence, the Blues have an edge in the transfer pursuit but they need to be wary of clubs playing in the Champions League.

The Blues won't be qualifying for the Champions League next term and this could be a potential stumbling block for them.
