According to Italian media outlet Il Mattino, Chelsea is currently leading the race to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.
Osimhen has a £103 million release clause in his contract, which is within Chelsea’s reach.
Chelsea legends Didier Drogba and John Obi Mikel have reportedly played a role in convincing Osimhen to join Mauricio Pochettino’s team at Chelsea.
Osimhen has already made a decision about his future and plans to announce it later this year. He has expressed his desire to play in the Premier League and is particularly inspired by Didier Drogba, raising speculation that he may join Chelsea.
Other clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal, and Real Madrid are also interested, but Chelsea is considered the frontrunner.
