Chelsea has the go-ahead for Victor Osimhen’s transfer, but the high asking price might hinder the deal.
Napoli’s striker, Victor Osimhen, is someone Chelsea wants to sign. But Napoli asking for £100 million might stop the deal in January. Osimhen has been doing well, scoring six goals in seven games, even though he had a hard time at the start of the season. His club, Napoli, even made fun of him on social media, which led to criticism about racism. His agent talked about taking legal action.
Osimhen, who might not stay in Napoli for long, is liked by Chelsea. He might join because he was chosen as the first pick to help their attack during the next transfer window.
Chelsea wants to be in the top four this season. But their team, led by coach Mauricio Pochettino, is having a hard time being consistent. Some players like Christopher Nkunku and Armando Broja are dealing with injuries, affecting the team’s performance.
But Napoli wants a lot of money for Osimhen, around £100 million, and this might make Chelsea’s plan difficult. Chelsea also has financial questions because they spent a lot recently and signed players on long contracts.
Chelsea recently lost a game to Newcastle, which made their coach Pochettino angry. He said the team lacked determination and made it too easy for Newcastle to win.
