Chelsea make ‘first contact’ with Napoli over stunning €90m move for Victor Osimhen 

Chelsea have reportedly made ‘first contact’ with Napoli over a stunning players-plus-cash move for Victor Osimhen. 

The 25-year-old has earned rave reviews for his performances in Italy since joining the Naples outfit in 2020. 

Despite struggling with injuries, he has registered 14 goals and three assists in 22 Serie A appearances this campaign.

The Nigeria international has a contract at Napoli until 2026 but he is expected to be sold in the summer transfer window

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made Osimhen a top target as they look to replace Kylian Mbappe who is set to join Real Madrid. 

Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio says Chelsea have made initial contact with the Serie A club over a move for Osimhen.

The Blues are looking to agree a fee of around €80-90 million plus striker Romelu Lukaku and a young player. 

Chelsea need attacking reinforcements as they have struggled to score goals this season. 

Striker Nicolas Jackson has bagged 15 goals in 42 appearances but has been guilty of several high-profile misses this campaign. 

Christopher Nkunku has made only two starting appearances due to his injury issues. 

Only Cole Palmer has impressed, netting 20 goals in 29 Premier League appearances.
