Chelsea “have meetings planned with the entourage of” Victor Osimhen

Chelsea will reportedly hold a meeting this week with one of the best current strikers around, Victor Osimhen.

We know that a number 9 is something that Chelsea have been looking to prioritise this summer. 21-year-old Nicolas Jackson looks to be arriving from Villarreal, but it looks like Chelsea might still be seeking more options up top.

Osimhen would be a dream signing for many top clubs, but he certainly would not come cheap. But according to journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Chelsea will at least be holding meetings with his representatives over a potential move to Stamford Bridge.

Tavolieri tweeted the info out over the weekend, as seen below, and he says that next week will define the intentions of the interested clubs, and also names Manchester United and Liverpool alongside Chelsea. Osimhen’s intentions are to move to the Premier League.

You can never rule this move out for Chelsea, but it does seem very unlikely due to how expensive he would be.
