Chelsea are ready to break the British transfer record again in the summer to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, according to The Sun.

Chelsea owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital intend to continue spending in the summer and have identified a new forward as their top priority.

Despite securing the signing of Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig ahead of next summer, the Blues are keen on signing a proven goalscorer to lead the line and have made Osimhen a top target.

With 14 goals in just 16 appearances, the Nigeria international – who is also wanted by Manchester United – is the leading scorer in Serie A.

Chelsea are reportedly willing to pay the £110million that Napoli are demanding for Osimhen and that would make the transfer a British transfer record.
