£100M star has dropped hint at a potential move to Chelsea


CHELSEA fans have been sent into meltdown after Napoli star Victor Osmihen hinted at a potential move to Stamford Bridge.

Despite having spent a fortune on new players over the course of the last few transfer windows, the club find themselves sitting 10th in the Premier League, 12 points behind fourth placed Manchester City who have a game in hand on Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Nicolas Jackson seems to have the trust of his manager Mauricio Pochettino, but it does not look like that will stop the club from entering the market for a new No.9.

He has been impressive at time during his stint at Stamford Bridge, but he does not look like a forward that has the ability to push on and score 20-30 or even 40 goals a season for the Blues.

And that has led to constant speculation in the media over the past few months that we are keen on signing the pacy forward, who recently signed a new deal through till the summer 2026, and would likely cost around £100m.

Now he has reportedly given the Blues fans a massive boost as the Nigerian forward, who fired Napoli to the Serie A title last term, scoring 26 goals in 32 games, celebrated his 25th birthday, with fans of Osimhen sending positive messages on social media.

One fan wrote: “Happy birthday Victor Osimhen, pls come and rescue CHELSEA soon” attaching a photo of Osimhen as a child wearing a Chelsea shirt from the 2011/2012 season.

And fans will have been thrilled to see the 25-year-old reply to the tweet with two heart emojis, and a praying hands emoji too, hinting he would be open to a move away from Naples in favour of the Premier League.

Could Chelsea sign Osimhen in January?

He possesses the kind of firepower that could take us back into the top four and possibly challenge for trophies in the next couple of seasons, he is a player that is really an elite forward.
