Chelsea strong contenders for Osimhen
Chelsea are strong contenders to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer, according to the Evening Standard. The 24-year-old is aware of interest from the Blues, who regard him as a primary target as they pursue another physical forward.
They believe the Nigeria international, who has scored 25 goals in 29 games this season, would allow them to compete with the firepower of Manchester City’s goal machine Erling Haaland.
Chelsea’s need is driven by a dismal season in front of goal. They have scored just 29 Premier League goals, more than only seven clubs in the division who all find themselves in a relegation battle. Kai Havertz is the club’s top scorer with nine goals in 36 matches across all competitions.

Nevertheless, the reporter suggests that Frankfurt may be willing to cash in on the 23-year-old for €30m, a sum that will undoubtedly pique the interest of any suitor.
