Opinion: Why Chelsea Should Make A Move For Victor Osimhen Next Summer.

One Nigerian striker who seems to be in red hot form for his club side this season is no other person than Napoli's center forward Victor Osimhen.

The 22 year old Nigerian star, has found his goal scoring touch once again, after a very disappointing first season with Italian side Napoli.

Recall that Osimhen failed to really deliver in front of goal for the Naples based club after joining from Lille in a big money move two seasons ago.

The striker now seems to have adapted to his new environments, and has recorded an impressive 11 goals in 16 appearances for both club and country.

Should Osimhen keep up with his impressive goal scoring form, there is every possibility that the big clubs will come in search of his services next season.

One club which i feel would be a good destination for Victor Osimhen, will be no other than West London club side Chelsea.

The blues who could be in need of a striker next season, should consider making a move for the Nigerian striker, and i will thus be giving my reasons.

Help Chelsea switch to a 3-5-2

The presence of Osimhen in a Chelsea team, could give Tuchel the opportunity to play with two center forwards up front, in a 3-5-2 formation.

The Chelsea manager has tried experimenting with the a 3-5-2 formation this season, but seems not to have the best personalities up front to execute the formation.

I feel Osimhen could provide more attacking threat in attack for Chelsea, alongside any of Romelu Lukaku or Timo Werner.

Form a lethal partnership with Lukaku

Another reason why Chelsea fc should consider making an approach for Victor Osimhen, is because of the possibility of him forming a dreadful partnership with star striker Romelu Lukaku.

I feel that a Osimhen/Lukaku front pairing would be more lethal than the current pairing of Lukaku and Timo Werner at Chelsea.

Osimhen is built for the Epl

Lastly on why Chelsea should make a move for the Nigerian star, is because he has the qualities a good premier league striker.

Victor Osimhen is big, strong, tall and has a good eye for goal which makes him a typical Epl striker, which would be an advantage for Chelsea.

His attributes could also mean that it will take him few months to adapt to the premier league, unlike a Timo Werner who is still struggling to learn the in and outs of the league.

Do you think Victor Osimhen will do well at Chelsea?
