President Officially confirms World class Chelsea target is moving

Osimhen

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed Victor Osimhen will leave the club this summer, and CHELSEA FC are tipped to land the striker.

It is no secret that we have been eyeing a move for Osimhen even before Mauricio Pochettino took over as boss last summer – but have been unable to get a deal done as Napoli had no intention of letting him leave.

The transfer speculation has continued this January window as the club were still keen to sign a big-time striker – but with the financial fair play rules catching everybody out – no deals have really been done this month.

The 25-year-old penned a new deal in Naples last month, but it is said to include a release clause of £112m – and it now looks like Napoli are willing to cash in on the star as De Laurentiis has explained he already knows Osimhen is leaving.

He said: “This [Osimhen’s exit] was already known since this summer, our negotiations [over the new contract] were friendly, otherwise it would not have been so long.”

And the president even hinted at where Osimhen will be heading by the end of the season.

He said: “We knew he would go to Real Madrid, PSG or a top English club.”
