Transfer: Chelsea Ready to Break Bank for Napoli’s Striker, Victor Osimhen

Chelsea FC is keen on signing Napoli’s prolific striker, Victor Osimhen, who has a release clause of over £100 million. 

According to Sky Italia, the Blues are interested in acquiring the Nigerian international, who recently signed a contract extension that includes a release clause to facilitate a potential summer transfer. 

However, Chelsea faces stiff competition from Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal, who are also vying for Osimhen’s signature.

Napoli’s president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has acknowledged that he cannot prevent Osimhen from leaving due to the release clause. 

This development has sparked a bidding war among top European clubs, with Chelsea eager to bolster their attack with the talented striker. 

Osimhen’s impressive goal-scoring record and pace make him an attractive option for Thomas Tuchel’s side, who are seeking to strengthen their squad for next season’s challenges.

The £100 million-plus release clause is a significant hurdle, but Chelsea’s ownership is willing to invest in top talent to restore the club’s dominance in the Premier League and Champions League. 

The battle for Osimhen’s signature is set to be one of the most intriguing transfer sagas of the summer.
