On the Si Phillips Talks Chelsea Substack, dependable reporter Ben Jacobs states that signing Victor Osimhen is utterly impossible this month. Napoli will not consider any proposals.
Still, Chelsea persists in attempting. The Nigerian’s summer transfer is something that the Blues and Napoli are hoping to work out.
Chelsea employed a similar ruse with Christopher Nkunku. Although the agreement was reached in December 2022, the Frenchman went to the Bridge in the summer of 2023.
Osimhen has made 18 appearances for Napoli this season across all competitions, tallying eight goals and two assists.
