According to a report from Italian journalist Ciro Vanerato, Chelsea are looking to improve its attacking department with the signing of Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.

The 24 year old striker is expected to leave Napoli at the end of the season and is also attracting interest from Real Madrid, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Venerato said as quoted by CaughtOffside: “If Osimhen’s representatives or the footballer show the desire to have new experiences elsewhere, Napoli could sell him for very high figures of €120m or €140m.

“Many top clubs are on the Nigerian: first and foremost Real Madrid, because Carlo Ancelotti dotes on him, then Manchester United, Tottenham (if Harry Kane leaves) and Chelsea.”

Osimhen has been in impressive form this season picking up 14 goals and 4 assists across 19 appearances.
