Craig Burley has urged Chelsea to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen and play alongside Christopher Nkunku in attack.

The Blues have already completed the transfer of Nkunku from RB Leipzig and Burley has urged Chelsea to push for the signing of Osimhen from Napoli.

Burley believes an attack of Nkunku and Osimhen would scare defenders.

“I think him (Nkunku) and Osimhen would scare the living daylights out of people… can you imagine,” Burley told ESPN.

“I don’t know if he would leave Napoli, but you’re not getting him until the summer at the earliest.”

According to Calciomercato, Napoli will demand at least £87million for the transfer of Osimhen, who is rated as one of best strikers in Europe.
