According to a report from El Nacional, Chelsea are considering a move for Napoli’s Victor Osimhen. The Blues have been the ‘money spenders’ in the past and now they want to strengthen their squad with the Napoli ace. Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window, but he is struggling with form and fitness recently.

The Blues would not want to sit and wait for Lukaku’s form to return, especially when they are strong championship challengers. While they have also sold Tammy Abraham to AS Roma and Olivier Giroud to AC Milan for a very small amount this summer.

Chelsea feels compelled to sign Osimhen since Timo Werner hasn’t been scoring at will and Lukaku is out injured. They also attempted playing Kai Havertz as a ‘False 9,’ but he isn’t fully developed in that role yet.

Why Victor Osimhen can succeed at Chelsea as Lukaku backup?

The Blues sold Tammy Abraham to Roma in the transfer window and also allowed Giroud to leave for AC Milan at a pittance. The London club wanted a strong striker and they have been successful in getting exactly what they want by signing Lukaku. Victor Osimhen has a very similar player profile to that of Romelu Lukaku. The 22-year-old forward has netted the ball 9 times in 13 appearances this season.

He is strong, agile, fast, and young and can only get better over the period of time. Osimhen will flourish under the influence of Lukaku and guidance from Thomas Tuchel. This signing will benefit Chelsea hugely because this will also be a signing for the long run and they will not face much competition for his signature.

Real Madrid were interested in signing Osimhen, but due to their economical struggle, they were unable to get his signature. Napoli acted on it quickly and signed the Nigerian international. Following this, Chelsea have to pay a hefty amount to Napoli to secure the services of Osimhen. He has already drawn comparisons to Lukaku and will be an excellent match for Chelsea.

The youngster will provide depth to their already strong squad and make their job easier. The signing will also be a great step in Osimhen’s career. He will surely be a great striker in the future years if makes the correct move. The Blues are in a strong position in all competitions and signings like these and their money spending power will only lead them to greater success.
