Chelsea to use Lukaku, Casadei to land big summer signing

Victor Osimhen to Chelsea

Chelsea have intensified their effort to sign Nigeria and Napoli’s prolific striker Victor Osimhen, reportedly offering a player-plus-cash deal to secure his services. According to reliable sources, the London-based club is willing to include Romelu Lukaku and Cesare Casadei in the transfer to offset the cost of acquiring the highly sought-after Nigerian international.

Osimhen, 25, has been a prime target for Chelsea as they seek to bolster their attacking options ahead of the upcoming season. Despite extending his contract with Napoli until 2026 in December, the lure of the English Premier League and Chelsea’s persistence have seemingly revived the transfer prospects.

Earlier reports suggested Chelsea had reservations about Osimhen’s injury history, while Paris Saint-Germain failed to persuade him, and Arsenal were unable to meet his release clause. However, the latest developments indicate that Chelsea are willing to proceed with the deal, potentially involving Lukaku and Casadei to sweeten the offer.

Although neither Osimhen’s camp nor Chelsea has commented on the situation, the summer transfer window is shaping up to be a thrilling contest, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal vying for the Nigerian star’s signature.

Osimhen’s impressive form for Napoli has made him a coveted asset in the transfer market. His pace, power, and goal-scoring prowess have drawn comparisons to some of the world’s top strikers. Chelsea’s determination to land Osimhen is a prove of their ambition to strengthen their squad and challenge for major honors in the upcoming season.
