Chelsea to wait for Osimhen

Chelsea have no plans of pursuing a deal for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen during the January transfer window.

The west London giants have struggled in the final third this campaign with Nicolas Jackson struggling to find the net.

They are keen on landing a marquee striker next year but reports claim that they won't be pursuing Osimhen in January.

The Blues are aware that Napoli are a difficult club to negotiate with and they are unlikely to enter discussions this winter.

They prefer to wait until the end of the campaign before assessing whether they can afford the highly-rated centre-forward.

Osimhen's current deal expires at the end of next season and as things stand, he has no plans of negotiating a renewal.

The 24-year-old is unhappy with the club's Tiktok account mocking him earlier this term and he is keen to move on soon.

He prefers to see out the current campaign with the club before pursuing a new challenge preferably in the Premier League.
