Chelsea Ready To Trigger Release Clause Of Osimhen


Chelsea are set to step up their efforts to find an agreement with Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen as they anticipate competition from top French Ligue side PSG.

According to Rudy Galetti, Chelsea are looking to get ahead in the race for Osimhen and intent to find an agreement with the striker quickly. The Blues are willing to trigger the Nigerian’s release clause as they anticipate rivals to provide intense competition for the Napoli star.

Chelsea are eager for a new striker, and for a few months now it has become clear that Osimhen is their priority target. There are challenges for the Blues before signing the 25-year-old attacker, although they are trying to get ahead in the race as they anticipate rival interests.

As per Rudy Galetti, Chelsea are willing to trigger Osimhen’s €130 million release clause and begin negotiations with the striker. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have somewhat struggled for relevance without a recognised No.9 and have made the Napoli striker their main target.

The lack of Champions League football could prove a stumbling block for Chelsea in the race, but there are signs they might have done plenty of groundwork for the 25-year-old attacker. However, with the striker’s market now developing rapidly, Chelsea feels threatened by the likes of PSG, who have entered the Osimhen race.
