Chelsea news: Big boss confirms deal for one of games best ‘is imminent’

Osimhen

Napoli club president Aurelio De Laurentiis has claimed that CHELSEA target Victor Osimhen is about to agree a new contract at the club.

The coub have spent some crazy money over the last couple of transfer windows and brought players to the club that they hoped would get the side competing for the big titles.

They even have one of the best managers in the game and a man that has been tipped to be a real success at Stamford Bridge – but the start to the new season has brought up some worrying displays, and questioned the clubs transfer policy.

That has led to reports in the media that we could try and make a move for Osimhen in the January window, a man that they wanted to sign in the summer window and a striker that is easily regarded as one of the best in the game.

He has been in contract talks with Napoli for quite some time now, but has been unable to agree a new contract as the Italians are playing hard-ball and do not want to offer him the kind of deal that he feels he fully deserves.

However, the deal was not signed due to what De Laurentiis described as a “change of mood” from Osimhen.

That prompted reports of a downturn in relations between club and player, until the Napoli president’s fresh claims that the deal will be signed imminently after all.

He told reporters at an event in Naples: “With Osimhen, we are about to sign the contract that was pending this summer.”
