French giants PSG are prepared to battle Chelsea and Arsenal for the signature of Victor Osimhen this summer, following news that Kylian Mbappe will move on from Parc Des Princes at the end of the season.

Mbappe is prepared to cut ties with the French giants after spending the last six years with them.

Real Madrid is believed to be the next destination of the 25-year-old, who has also been linked with Liverpool and Arsenal in the past.

According to The Athletic, PSG are already planning for life without the prolific forward, and have identified Osimhen as his ideal replacement, who seem to be on his way to Chelsea.

Osimhen has grown to become one of Europe’s most potent strikers after firing Napoli to the Scudetto last season. The Nigerian has also been in good form this term, having already scored seven times in 13 matches.

Both Chelsea and Arsenal are also expected to go into a tussle for Osimhen’s signature this summer, but the Premier League clubs can now expect to be rivalled by PSG if the report is true.

Osimhen signed a contract extension with Napoli last December, and his release clause reportedly stands at £111m.
