Osimhen to Chelsea in Jan?

Chelsea continue to push for the potential transfer of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, according to Sport Mediaset.

The west London giants have had a disastrous start to the Premier League campaign. This has been primarily due to the poor finishing in front of goal.

Nicolas Jackson was dubbed as the new Didier Drogba on his arrival from Villarreal last summer, but he has scored just one league goal thus far.

The club need to reinvest in the centre-forward department and it is claimed that they are eager to land Osimhen from the Italian champions.

Osimhen's relationship with Napoli has deteriorated over the past few days after he was mocked by the club's TikTok account for his penalty miss.

The Serie A outfit have sent a personal apology to the striker for the same, but the Nigerian is said to be assessing his options ahead of January.

Napoli are unlikely to sell him in the next transfer window, but a significant transfer offer of around £150 million could seriously test their resolve.
