World Class 72-goal star ‘Wants To Join Chelsea’ In The Summer Transfer Window


Napoli striker Victor Osimhen ‘loves’ Chelsea and wants to join the Premier League club, according to John Obi Mikel.

Osimhen, who has scored 72 goals in 122 appearances for Napoli, has attracted interest from the club and Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the summer transfer window.

He has already told the Napoli owners that he wants to leave the club at the end of the current campaign – and if you believe the words of Obi-Mikel – he would like to join the Blues in the summer transfer window.

‘I’m still Osimhen’s agent, trying to get him to CHELSEA FC! I’ve got 20 per cent of that deal, so I hope it works out!’ Mikel said at the Web Summit Qatar on Thursday.

When asked if Osimhen joining Chelsea is a ‘genuine possibility’, Mikel replied: ‘I think there is genuine interest between both. I think he loves the club, he wants to come to the club.

‘Obviously, he wants to follow my footsteps as a Nigerian player who has played for Chelsea – Victor Moses, Celestine Babayaro, not a lot of us.

‘London as well, fantastic city, instead of going to Liverpool or places like that you want to live in London.

‘But he also has a lot of interest. Paris Saint-Germain, Man United.

‘I’m stil pushing, sending him messages, trying to make sure he doesn’t expect to much, narrow you’re mind on one club – the Blues.

‘I am pushing him, I hope he comes to the club. I think one thing we lack, I think everyone who watch the [Carabao Cup] final on Sunday will see that one thing we are lacking is scoring goals. We need that striker who will score goals.


‘And that’s what Victor will give you. He’s not the most skilful guy, but goals are definitely guaranteed.

‘If he could get us 20 plus a season, 25, who knows, that’s what Erling Haaland does, that’s why he’s one of the best, he’s not really there for link-ups and all that, get the ball in the box and he will finish. That’s something Victor will definitely give us.

‘Let’s hope it works out and he comes to CHELSEA and becomes a legend.’
