Chelsea interested in signing the new Victor Osimhen. He would cost just £650,000

Chelsea are interested in signing Gambian striker Adama Bojang, who has been hailed as the new Victor Osimhen, according to Daily Mail.

The 18 year old striker, who scored 4 goals in the recent CAF U20 tournament, is also attracting interest from Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest.

The report adds: “The 18-year-old centre-forward plays his club football for Steve Biko FC in his native Gambia and is currently valued at around £650,000.

“However, securing a work permit for the 6ft 3ins teenager could present a series of difficulties for any English side.

“The Premier League clubs interested in landing Bojang are believed to be considering making an initial investment on the striker and then sending him immediately out on loan.

“His physical attributes and style of play have drawn comparisons to Napoli and Nigeria centre-forward Victor Osimhen, with some believing he could go on to better Osimhen’s achievements in the game.

“He is so similar to the Napoli man in style that Napoli are also in the mix along with Chelsea, Palace and the rest of the Premier League clubs.

“Marseille, Ajax and Royal Antwerp are among the teams on the contintent who remain interest in investing in the Gambian talent.”
