Chelsea, Tottenham Set For €150m Biding Tussle For Osimhen


Sky Sport Italia suggests Chelsea will make a call to Napoli this week for €150m-rated Super Eagles ace Victor Osimhen, with Tottenham also potentially joining Manchester United and PSG in the race.

The striker’s agent met with President Aurelio De Laurentiis to discuss a potential contract extension and to set the price tag that would make them consider sitting down with another club.

It is believed to be at an absolute minimum of €150m, so anything less than that won’t even be worth talking about.

Sky Sport Italia pundit Massimo Marianella claimed that Chelsea is not scared off by the asking price and will make a call to Napoli any time this week to get a clearer idea of the situation.

They aren’t the only ones, as Paris Saint-Germain could go for Osimhen if Kylian Mbappé moves on to Real Madrid this summer, while Manchester United has long been interested.

A new contender would be Tottenham Hotspur, who risk losing Harry Kane in the transfer window and need a big replacement.

Meanwhile, Osimhen is still enjoying his holiday back in Nigeria after a brilliant season in the Italian Serie A.

Osimhen and his close pals were spotted at Lagos Island as they went sailing on the Atlantic ocean on an exquisite private mini yacht.
