Headline taking Chelsea target told to make Premier League move


Long-term CHELSEA transfer target Victor Osimhen has been encouraged to make the move to the Premier League.

Osimhen has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and the report from Italy claims that we are ‘already ready’ for a big summer assault on the striker.

It’s said that Todd Boehly will pay the Nigerian’s €120million release clause to sign him and solve one of the clubs biggest issues – which is scoring goals on a weekly basis and getting back into the hunt for a Champions League place

Now amid all the speculation – Emmanuel Adebayor – who represented the Gunners, Tottenham and Manchester City in his playing days – has told BBC Sport of Osimhen potentially following in the footsteps of his boyhood idol:

“He has the right attitude, mentality and determination to excel there (in England). I’m praying for him to move to the Premier League and show what he’s capable of.

‘The Premier League is the toughest and best (league) in the world. Osimhen has shown and done it already in Italy, I think it is the right time for him to move to England and replace his idol Drogba and do beautiful things.

‘He has all it takes to make a name and write a great chapter in England like Drogba.”

There are quite a few people that would love to see Osimhen in the Premier League and he is certainly a player that Pochettino would love to sign.

However – Seria A is not the Premier League and it could be a massive risk for the club to sign a player that needs time to adjust to the English game when there are options already in the English top-flight.

But Osimhen is a big player that would send a statement to the rest of the Premier League that is for sure.
