Truth revealed over Chelsea’s alleged Victor Osimhen offer

Yesterday saw a report breaking from France that Chelsea had made an offer for Nigerian international striker Victor Osimhen.

Sport Witness ran the report yesterday citing French Journalist Abdellah Boulma, and these reports were then picked up by other outlets in France.

However, Boulma soon deleted the tweet in question and put up a correction tweet stating that it was actually Tottenham that had made the offer for the Lille striker, not Chelsea.

Chelsea do hold an interest in the 21-year old though, as reported by The Sun back in April this year.

But it does appear that no offers have been made for him yet by Frank Lampard’s side.

The fee was reported to be £85 million, but the actual fee offered by Spurs is apparently much less than that.

Both clubs will be on the hunt for a new striker this summer, but you’d imagine they will both need to be wise in their expenditure due to the current climate.
