How Chelsea Could Sign a Nigerian Striker in January and Comply With FFP Rules, by Victor Osimhen.
In order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, English Premier League club Chelsea would need to offload additional strikers in order to sign Nigerian international Victor Osimhen in January.
If the troubled Nigerian international is able to push his way out of the Italian club, Stamford Bridge would be the ideal destination.
Following a TikTok video that appeared to make fun of Osimhen for missing a penalty, the striker’s agency recently warned Napoli.
In a Serie A match last weekend, Napoli and Bologna fought to a scoreless draw. The 24-year-old forward missed the target from the penalty spot.
It will be challenging for Chelsea to honour his Partenopei contract because of the Financial Fair Play regulations, which extends until June 2025.
Todd Boehly’s team has spent £400 million during the summer transfer window, and they added to that money by selling a number of important players.
Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic, Kai Havertz, and Kalidou Koulibaly all left the London club for lucrative positions.
If Chelsea is to remedy its striker problems with the arrival of Osimhen in the January or summer 2024 transfer windows, further sales will need to occur, according to Football Insider.
According to sources, Mauricio Pochettino’s players Marc Cucurella and Noni Madueke have played the fewest minutes this season.
Concerns have also been raised about Christopher Nkunku, who is battling to make the first squad, since he may be sidelined till the end of the year due to injury.
This week, the Nigerian international erased all of the Italian team-related content from his Instagram account after the team made fun of him on their official TikTok account.
In response to Fruscio’s criticism of Osimhen’s behaviour, who was a former striker for Lille, Nigerians reacted angrily and attacked her in the comments section of her post.
