Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has his sights of joining Chelsea amid interest from Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The Nigerian is expected to leave the Serie A champions at the end of the season and his representatives are already in contact with interested clubs.

Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG are in the pursuit of his services, but it is reported that the Blues have a big advantage over their rivals.

Osimhen was a boyhood Chelsea fan and he is reportedly keen to follow in the footsteps of Didier Drogba, who was his idol.

The news is a huge blow for the Gunners and PSG, who are aiming to land a marquee striker during the next transfer window.

Osimhen has not been at his best this term with nine goals from 19 games, but he continues to remain an elite centre-forward.

The Blues seem to have a head start over the rest due to the player's desire, but he won't come on the cheap during the summer.

Napoli are expected to hold out for his €130m release clause.
