Zola announces potential £100M signing will ‘do very well at Chelsea’


CHELSEA Football Club legend, Gianfranco Zola says Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will do well at Stamford Bridge if he makes the move to London.

Osimhen is one of the most talked about players in world football right now and a man that the club are reportedly very keen to try and acquire during the January window as they seek to add an elite forward to the attack.

But the club have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Osimhen, after the Italians came out in the media and revealed that the big Nigerian is very close to agreeing a new deal with the now.

Now Fabrizio Romano is saying he doesn’t expect him to leave Napoli this winter, and only a crazy offer will get a deal done for the man.

However – as talk about the Nigerian’s future continues to ramp up about a potential £120million move, Zola has opened up and claimed that Osimhen would do very well at Stamford Bridge if he signs for the club.

“I rate him as one of the top strikers around at the moment, for his energy, for his ability to score and also play with the opposition. I’m sure he can be a success in the Premier League as well for sure,” Zola told Obionepodcast.

“Of course the way, you know for what I see with Chelsea I think a player with this quality will do very well.

“He will change a lot of things for CHELSEA to the positive in my opinion but again as I said, I truly believe that it was the right thing to stay again one more year with Napoli.”
