Chelsea are in the market to sign some much needed attacking reinforcement as the London club looks to bolster their squad ahead of next season. Chelsea are now in a firm position to sign Victor Osimhen as the club have identified him as a potential signing.
21-year old Victor Osimhen has been one of the hottest prospects in Europe as the young Nigerian attacker has been in scillintating form for Lille since his transfer to the Club. The striker has scored 18-goals in all competitions for the French club.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants to bolster his attack as the manager has massively depended on young Tammy Abraham for goals this season as both Oliver Giroud and Batshuayi have failed to find the back of the net consistently. Tammy Abraham has scored 15goals in all competitions but Chelsea needs more depth in attack.
Nigeria International Victor Osimhen who has been hailed as the new “Didier Drogba’ has been a Chelsea target and it has also been reported that the Nigerian is keen on a move to England and Chelsea could be his preferred destination.
Victor Osimhen caught the attention of Chelsea scouts and Frank Lampard when Chelsea faced Lille in the Champions League and with the striker scoring against the Blues. Chelsea would be making a big deal to secure the young marksman.
Osimhen is likely to cost Chelsea in the region of £70m as the striker is highly rated by Lille and he still has a great market value. However, Chelsea will have to move fast to complete the deal as the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and even Barcelona have been linked with a move.
Osimhen’s addition will be a massive to Chelsea as he will be be able to complement Tammy Abraham and add more competition to Chelsea’s attack.
