BREAKING NEWS: coming live from Fabrizio Romano, ” it’s not new anymore everyone knows he (osimhen) is leaving this summer he has told us he seeks a new challenge and it has been accepted nothing anyone can do in as much as we still need him. Chelsea is his possible destination he want to play in the premier League”. Napoli have confirmed that striker Victor Osimhen will leave the club in the summer with Chelsea being his preferred destination.

Victor Osimhen, a striker for the Nigeria national team, has confirmed that he will leave Napoli in the summer. Chelsea is one of three potential destinations for Osimhen.


Osimhen recently inked a fresh contract with the Serie A champions, but the primary motive behind this extension was to provide the player with a short-term wage boost while ensuring Napoli maintains control over his transfer fee. His prior deal was set to expire in 2025, potentially putting Napoli in a precarious position for the upcoming summer transfer window. The new contract allows Napoli to demand any interested club to match Osimhen’s release fee, which is believed to be around €130 million.

Napoli’s president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has officially disclosed the situation, affirming that the negotiations for the new contract were amicable, emphasizing their awareness that Osimhen could attract interest from prominent clubs like Real Madrid, PSG, or a top English club.

While various clubs have expressed interest in Osimhen, Chelsea has emerged as the frontrunner in the race for his signature. Despite this, Premier League counterparts Arsenal and Manchester United are also keeping a watchful eye. The potential involvement of Real Madrid and PSG hinges on the future decisions surrounding Kylian Mbappe, who is set to be a free agent at the end of the current season.

Financially robust clubs like Chelsea, Real Madrid, and PSG have the capacity to facilitate such a deal, but Chelsea stands out among the Premier League contenders for its history of substantial spending. Osimhen himself hinted at an imminent departure in the summer, revealing his decision-making process in an interview with CBS Sports. He expressed a firm resolution, stating, “I have already made my decision on the next step to take at the end of the season. I already made up my mind. I already have my plan, I know what I want to do, the next step I want to take.”

Rumors have circulated that Osimhen has reached an agreement to join Chelsea, with discussions allegedly involving former Blues striker Didier Drogba. The intricate dynamics of Osimhen’s contract extension, coupled with the growing interest from powerhouse clubs, set the stage for an intriguing transfer saga in the upcoming summer window.
