DEVASTATING NEWS: coming live from Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea top transfer target Victor Osimhen is set to sign a new contract at Napoli that would contain a release clause giving Chelsea and other interested clubs a firm price to pay to sign the prolific striker. He said ” I made it open that I want to join Chelsea I’m still interested in joining Chelsea but their recent performances and position has made me have a rethink and also the play style of Pochettino its not my kind of football, if Chelsea wants me they should prove it that they have all it takes to get me not just financially but also football wise”.

Victor Osimhen is expected to sign a new deal with Napoli that will include a release clause that will set a firm price for Chelsea and other interested teams to pay in order to sign the prolific striker.


Osimhen, who has scored 32 goals in Serie A since the beginning of the previous season and drawn interest from the top teams in Europe, is arguably the most exciting forward in football right now.

The 24-year-old is reportedly Chelsea’s top target in January, but after months of talks, reports from Italy indicate Napoli and Osimhen are almost certain to reach an agreement on a new contract.

Osimhen’s current contract is scheduled to expire in 2025, but according to Gianluca di Marzio, his new contract will extend his contract by an additional year and include a “significant” pay increase and—possibly most intriguingly—a release clause worth between €130 and €140 million.

Despite his early dissatisfaction at the beginning of the season, Napoli has always been confident in locking down their talisman striker to a new contract, and an agreement is anticipated to be formalised soon.

Osimhen is probably going to be sold, even with a new deal.
Osimhen is prepared to formally pledge his allegiance to Napoli, but given his candidature regarding his desire to play in the Premier League, there is a chance the Nigerian international will be sold in 2024.

Osimhen has been the target of Chelsea’s greatest recent push, but Mauricio Pochettino’s team’s financial limitations will probably prevent them from making a mid-season move for the striker.

Since Todd Boehly took over the team last year, the Blues have spent over €1 billion, and as a result of their enormous expenditure, the team is forced to sell before they can bring in any more high-profile players.

Viktor Gyokeres, a forward for Sporting, is reportedly being considered by Chelsea as a backup, but he could also cost more than €100 million. Arsenal may compete with Chelsea for both players.

Osimhen will probably stay with the team through the summer at the latest, even though Walter Mazzarri’s Napoli are sixth in the standings and seem unlikely to win the Serie A title this year. Instead, they have guaranteed their place in the Champions League knockout stages.
