Victor Osimhen has already decided which team he would join

Reportedly, Victor Osimhen has chosen Chelsea over Paris Saint-Germain as his favored destination, as per La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Nigerian striker is set to conclude his tenure with Napoli at the end of the current season, seeking a fresh challenge elsewhere.

Osimhen has been prolific during his time at Napoli, amassing 75 goals and 18 assists in 130 appearances across various competitions.

Both Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea have been in negotiations for Osimhen for some time now, with his release clause estimated between €120 million-€130 million.

While meeting such a substantial fee would grant either club permission for direct discussions with the player, it’s anticipated that talks will soon commence with Napoli to negotiate a lower transfer fee.

The allure of playing in the Premier League and following in the footsteps of his idol Didier Drogba, a legendary figure at Chelsea, could sway Osimhen towards the London club.

However, PSG aims to capitalize on Chelsea’s potential vulnerabilities, highlighting uncertainties about Chelsea’s status as Europe’s top team for the upcoming season.

Chelsea is expected to offer a significantly higher salary than Osimhen’s current €10 million in Naples, along with the promise of consistent starting opportunities.

Chelsea’s proposition is not only advantageous for Osimhen but also for Napoli. Aurelio De Laurentiis, the club’s president, seeks permanent transfers for Romelu Lukaku and one of their promising young talents, in addition to receiving a transfer fee of at least €80 million.

With Osimhen’s departure sparking a rebuilding phase for Napoli after a lackluster season, the club is anticipated to be active in the transfer market this summer.
