Chelsea To Put Osimhen's Move On Hold
Chelsea are set to put a move for Napoli's Victor Osimhen on hold as they believe agreeing a deal for the Nigeria striker, 24, would be too difficult this summer, according to reports in Football Insider.
Chelsea’s focus in the off-season will be on clearing the decks and balancing the books, with Mauricio Pochettino expected to take the Stamford Bridge hot seat.
Napoli are expected to demand offers north of £100million in order to part with Osimhen following their Serie A title win this season. The Nigeria international has previously gone public to speak about his “dream” of playing in the Premier League – comments which put the likes of Chelsea and Man United on high alert.
