        Nigerian forward and Napoli superstar, Victor Osimhen, is interested in a move to English Premier League club Chelsea who are eyeing the Napoli man as their prime target during their striker hunt in the upcoming transfer window.

        Amid increasing speculations about Osimhen’s future, Italian sources have claimed that the Nigeria international is open to a potential transfer to Chelsea.

        Mauricio Pochettino wants to add a center-forward to his squad in future windows, with Osimhen at the top of his list after his three seasons in Serie A where he has helped Napoli win the Scudetto.

        The Nigeria international is expected to have an asking price of more than £100m and could break the Premier League record of £106.8m paid by Chelsea for Enzo Fernandez, which could make a January deal difficult but it is a position Pochettino wants to fill in future.

        Chelsea have a link with Osimhen through Kalidou Koulibaly, who left the club in the summer for Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia but has friends at the club.

        According to The Telegraph, the pair have remained close since going their separate ways and a ringing endorsement from the Senegalese centre-back could turn the dial in Chelsea’s favour.

        Osimhen’s relationship with Napoli has been tested this season with his representatives threatening legal action over a video posted on an official club TikTok account that mocked their own player.

        Chelsea is strategically positioning themselves in the quest for Osimhen’s services, with rivals Arsenal also expressing interest in securing the striker.

        The forthcoming transfer window promises an intense battle as top clubs vie for Osimhen’s signature, marking a pivotal moment in the Nigerian forward’s potentially imminent Premier League arrival.
