Chelsea willing to pay £110 million for 17-goal summer target

Posted by

Chelsea are looking to improve their attacking options with the signing of Victor Osimhen at the end of the season.

According to TBR Football, Chelsea are willing to pay his £q10 million release clause this summer. However, the Blues would prefer to pay the money in instalments instead of a lump sum.

It will be interesting to see if Napoli are willing to accept that. Chelsea could include further add-ons in the deal to make it a lucrative proposal for Napoli.

It is no secret that Chelsea need to bring in attacking reinforcements and signing a quality striker should be one of their top priorities. The 25-year-old has been a key player for Napoli and he helped them win the league title last season. He has 17 goals in all competitions this season and he could prove to be a superb addition to the Chelsea attack.

Victor Osimhen could transform Chelsea

The Blues signed Nicolas Jackson at the start of the season and he was expected to solve their goalscoring problems. The former La Liga forward has been quite underwhelming so far and Chelsea need to bring in an upgrade.

Osimhen should prove to be a superb acquisition for them. The Nigerian has the physical and technical attributes to do well in the Premier League and he could make an instant impact at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea has spent a substantial amount of money on new signings since the takeover. They are looking to put together a squad capable of winning major trophies and someone like Osimhen could make a big difference for them next season.

Chelsea have been overly dependent on Cole Palmer for goals and Osimhen and could share the goalscoring burden with the England international. Paris Saint-Germain are keen non-signing the Nigerian international as well and it remains to be seen where he ends up.
