Osimhen to PSG?

Chelsea face the risk of missing out on Victor Osimhen amid fresh transfer interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Nigerian star recently signed a new long-term deal with Napoli, but it has a release clause worth €130 million for the summer.

The 25-year-old has already revealed his desire to move on. Chelsea are his long-term admirers, but PSG could beat them to his services.

The French champions are set to lose Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer this summer. He has decided against renewing his contract.

With Mbappe's anticipated move to Real Madrid, Les Parisiens will save close to €200 million in wages as well as bonuses.

Luis Enrique's side are planning to focus on landing Osimhen as Mbappe's successor. The news will come as a huge blow for Chelsea.

The Blues are unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next season and may not be able to match PSG's weekly wage offer.

Osimhen could also lean towards joining the Ligue 1 giants where he has the opportunity to win regular trophies during his prime.
