Why Chelsea Move for Osimhen Hinges on Key Condition

Chelsea’s Potential Move for Victor Osimhen Hinges on Key Condition, Reveals Trusted Journalist

There has been a lot mentioned about Napoli striker Victor Osimhen lately as debates, rumours and news continue to circulate about his future and his next move.

What we do know is that he will be departing his club in the summer, but what is completely up in the air still is his next destination, and even what country it will be.

Chelsea continue to be linked, but some recent reports have actually played down this move due to his price and wage demands.

But reliable journalist Ben Jacobs says that Chelsea CAN afford Osimhen should they wish to go all out for him in the summer, yet that will be on one condition only.

He believes Chelsea can sign Osimhen, but it would come at the sacrifice of other signings in other key areas they need to sign in on the pitch.

Writing in his exclusive Chelsea column for SPTC today, Jacobs said: “The key question in light of all this is can Chelsea afford Victor Osimhen? From what I am told the answer is yes, on paper; but in practice it may be at the expense of other names in key positions.

“Napoli are going to insist Osimhen’s £100m+ release clause is paid, and the Nigerian striker wants around £250k per week. These numbers might give PSG an edge since they have freed up around €200m-gross from Kylian Mbappe’s departure at the end of the season. But I am still told Osimhen ideally wants to move to the Premier League. So we can’t rule it out, for Chelsea, Arsenal or even Manchester United (if Erik ten Hag’s side somehow get Champions League).

‘Chelsea will want significant and quick outgoings and perhaps to put off strengthening other positions if they do put down an offer for the Nigerian.”
