At the conclusion of the season, Chelsea will be trying to add a goal scorer. They believe Victor Osimhen is their best bet. The Daily Mail reports that the Blues are considering trading Christian Pulisic for the 24-year-old Napoli striker, who is also a target for Manchester United.
The 24-year-old winger used to be a regular starter for the American national team, but he has since fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge. If he wants to play first-team football regularly, he has to leave Chelsea. Everyone would benefit from a relocation this summer.
The 24-year-old is a winger who has caught the attention of Napoli. It is unclear, however, whether they would be willing to negotiate with Chelsea over a potential part-exchange deal featuring Pulisic. Manchester United are apparently also interested in signing Osimhen.
The Red Devils want to get another reliable goal scorer to play with Marcus Rashford. Osimhen has been in outstanding form this year, leading Napoli to the Scudetto with 26 goals in all competitions.
The 24-year-old could have his sights set on a promotion for the next season. It could be enticing to join a Premier League powerhouse like Manchester United. The 24-year-old is reportedly a top target for both Chelsea and Manchester United.
Christian Pulisic has been linked to Manchester United. But, Chelsea wants to send him to Napoli to get Victor Osimhen
The price tag placed on the striker by the Italian club is £130 million. In order to sign him, Chelsea and Manchester United would have to pay an unprecedented sum. For the time being, Osimhen could solve their attacking issues. However, his price tag complicates any prospective transaction.
Since Chelsea has had trouble scoring goals all season, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is likely to be traded this offseason. Chelsea will welcome back on loan striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.
However, the Belgian’s future at the Premier League club looks dim. The summer market is a good time to sell him for quick cash. Whether or not Chelsea can get the necessary finances to sign the Napoli striker this summer is an open question. The battle to recruit Osimhen will be hampered by the presence of Manchester United and their reported £130 million budget.
