To pay for Victor Osimhen’s transfer, Pat Nevin is pleading with Chelsea to sell the £88 million dud.
To solve their striker shortage, Pat Nevin has advised Chelsea to pursue Victor Osimhen of Napoli. The Blues could also think about selling Mykhailo Mudryk to raise the necessary funds.
Chelsea news, information, and commentary
Following a convincing 2-1 loss to Manchester United, Mauricio Pochettino’s team collapsed into tenth position, a massive 11 points below the top four.
In spite of his summer transfer of a large quantity of money, Nicolas Jackson has not been able to consistently provide goals up front.
Only six league goals have been scored by the Colombian this season, three of which came against a nine-man Tottenham team in the same match.
Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling, both with five goals apiece, are the Blues’ next top scorers, and Pat Nevin believes this is an obvious indication that the team has to return to the market in the summer.
The former Chelsea player told BestGamblingSites, “Chelsea have bought some of the best strikers in history over the last decade or two, and it hasn’t worked often.”
Strikers are always extremely expensive, and Chelsea has previously blown their budget on players who haven’t always been worth it. They’ll need to shell out considerably more cash to sign a top-tier striker.
A few years ago, and I still believe it now, Victor Osimhen was the man. He’s probably the one Chelsea will pursue.
After leading Napoli to their first Serie A championship since 1990 in the previous campaign, Osimhen has scored six goals in ten Serie A games this season.
Nevin thinks it would be worthwhile to consider selling Mudryk to finance the transfer, given the Nigerian’s reportedly high asking price and the Ukrainian’s lacklustre displays since coming in January.
Chelsea has previously profited from Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic, and other players, and they can do so once more. It’s only business. He continued, “It may not be for the fans, but it is for the owners.”
Mudryk would be of interest to numerous teams! I’m not suggesting Chelsea should let him go, but if they want to get a striker with Osimhen’s calibre, they will need to move someone.
Although the club and I both didn’t enjoy Mason Mount leaving, the sale made financial sense. Similar computations will undoubtedly be made.
