Chelsea FC, one of the most prominent clubs in the Premier League, is looking for reinforcements in its forward line for next season. According to the English press, the Blues are in pole position to sign Victor Osimhen, Napoli’s Nigerian striker.
Osimhen, 23, has been impressing in Serie A with his goalscoring ability and attacking versatility. The possible incorporation of him into Chelsea would be a high-caliber reinforcement for the team led by Mauricio Pochettino, which seeks to strengthen its squad to try to return to the highest level in English football, as stated by the specialized portal ‘Caught Offside‘.
However, Chelsea are also considering alternatives in case Osimhen’s arrival does not materialize. Among them are Brentford’s Ivan Toney and Brighton’s Evan Ferguson. Toney, 25, has been a leading figure in the English Championship, with an impressive goalscoring record. For his part, Ferguson, a young 18-year-old talent, has aroused the interest of several Premier League clubs due to his promising progression.
There are more options, but Osimhen is the chosen one
Competition for these promising forwards could be intense as other big-name clubs are also closely monitoring these players. Chelsea, which seeks to remain at the top of English and European football, is determined to strengthen its squad and maintain its status as a contender in all competitions and although there are options to strengthen its squad, for now, they only think about the signing of Victor Osimhen.
