The prospects of disgruntled Napoli striker Victor Osimhen joining Chelsea in the transfer window is strengthened by the week.
The Nigerian’s potential move to the west London club got a further boost recently with Chelsea reportedly making Osimhen their primary target in the transfer window.
The Blues’ troubles this year has been their inability to put quality chances away – and with Osimhen netting 26 goals in 32 league appearances in the Serie A last season – he could be the perfect man to rectify that all too common problem for Mauricio Pochettino.
Chelsea 8/1 with Sky Bet to sign disgruntled Napoli star Victor Osimhen before February 3
Couple that with the fact that the 24-year-old’s relationship with his current club has been strained in recent months – and Osimhen’s arrival at Stamford Bridge appears promising on the surface.
Despite Chelsea’s interest and Osimhen’s desire to leave Napoli – the Blues are a long 8/1 with Sky Bet to sign him before February 3. That is quite a long price given the information outlined above – however – it could be the price tag the reigning Serie A champions are after that aren’t filling the bookies with any real confidence.
Napoli want £100 million for the striker – and with Chelsea facing financial fair play questions – the asking price could be what scuppers the deal.
Meanwhile, Arsenal and any Saudi Pro League club are next in the betting lines at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively.
