After securing the services of Argentine tactician Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager, the Blues have turned their attention to signing a prolific striker to lead their attacking line. The latest reports suggest that Chelsea has set their sights on Serie A’s top goal-scorer, Victor Osimhen.
Victor Osimhen has been making waves in Italian football, showcasing his immense talent and goal-scoring prowess with his current club, Napoli. The Nigerian international arrived in Naples in 2020 from Lille OSC and wasted no time in leaving his mark on the Serie A. In his first season, Osimhen netted an impressive 10 goals in 24 appearances, despite battling injuries and adapting to a new league. Second season was very impressive as he scored more than 20 goals which made Napoli the winner of the league for the first time in 33 years.
The forward possesses a combination of speed, strength, and clinical finishing that has caught the attention of top clubs across Europe. Chelsea, known for their attacking style of play, is keen to add Osimhen’s talents to their already star-studded squad. With Pochettino’s appointment, the Blues hope to build a formidable attacking force capable of challenging for domestic and European silverware. The pursuit of Osimhen reflects Chelsea’s ambition and desire to strengthen their strike force.
