Chelsea a long 8/1 to sign Victor Osimhen despite London club reportedly making the disgruntled Napoli striker their primary target

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.
