Chelsea are reportedly prepared to swap Christian Pulisic to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer.

Pulisic has been a bit-part player for the Blues this term and he is widely expected to make way in the next transfer window.

It is now reported that Napoli are interested in landing Pulisic and Chelsea could use him as a makeweight to sign Osimhen.

The Nigerian striker is currently valued at £130 million but the Blues can't afford the figure due to Financial Fair Play risks.

Hence, they are planning to lower the final fee by including Pulisic but it is unclear whether Napoli will consider the proposal.

Napoli have been tracking Pulisic's situation recently but there are several other attacking targets on their radar at the moment.

Apart from Chelsea, Manchester United have also been strongly linked with the striker, who has netted 28 goals for Napoli this term.

The Red Devils have been in regular contact with his representative this year but they are looking at different striking options
