Why In-form Nigerian Striker Osimhen Should Snub Chelsea If Todd Boehly Ever Submits A Bid For Him.
Despite missing a month of action through injury this season, Victor Osimhen is currently topping Napoli’s goalscoring chart in the Italian Serie A with 7 goals from 8 games.
The Nigerian bagged a hat-trick yesterday, the first of his career to help Napoli to a 4-nil win over Sassuolo and further cement their spot at the top of the table.
Osimhen’s performances this term has caught the eye of some of Europe’s heavyweights, with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea both credited with an interest in the former Lille player.
According to reports, the two English clubs has already sent scouts to watch Victor in action this season, with the 23-year old said to have impressed.
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang underperforming at the moment, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is expected to back Graham Potter in the winter transfer window and may likely go for Osimhen in January to help the team challenge for trophies.
Napoli has reportedly set Osimhen’s price tag in the region of £100 million which can put off many interested parties, but if Boehly manages to reach an agreement over a fee for the in-form striker, here’s why the player should still reject a move to the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea is still a team in transition under Potter, and if Osimhen is to join them now, it will affect his goalscoring form because they are not playing as a unit/team like Napoli.
Let’s take Erling Haaland as a case study here.
The Norwegian was scoring goals for fun in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and now he’s got even better at Man City where all his teammates appears to be working for him.
That’s not the case at Chelsea now where the likes of Mount and Sterling will choose to go for goal themselves instead of finding their striker (Aubameyang).
Osimhen should learn from his fellow African’s poor stats and situation and snub The Blues if Todd Boehly ever submits a bid for him or risk ending up like most of the strikers Chelsea bought that never lived up to expectations
