Chelsea boosted in Osimhen chase after PSG rumors

Breaking News: Rumors emerged Wednesday suggesting Italian club Napoli and French giants PSG agreed on a transfer fee for Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen. 

This initially seemed like a major setback for Chelsea, who have been heavily interested in signing the 25-year-old for some time. PSG reportedly plan to use funds saved from Kylian Mbappé’s expected wage decrease to lure Osimhen.

However, reports from French outlet RMC Sport cast doubt on the deal’s certainty. While they acknowledge discussions between PSG and Napoli, they emphasize there’s no official agreement yet between the clubs or the player himself. 

This is positive news for Chelsea, who are still very much in the running to sign the prolific striker, especially if PSG’s interest is less concrete than Italian media suggests.

Osimhen desires Champions League football next season, but Napoli’s €120 million release clause restricts potential buyers to a select few.

Chelsea are a strong contender, although competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool, Manchester United, and Arsenal remains a possibility. Additionally, PSG’s involvement in the transfer race cannot be entirely ruled out.
