According to the latest claim, Chelsea are in pole position to sign a 26-goal hero in 2024. The Blues arguably need an upper echelon striker – is Victor Osimhen the man for the job? Chelsea are also turning their attention to a young player – quelle surprise – who is grabbing headlines in Spain.
Just to give you a little background on Osimhen’s insanely productive career so far, he has scored a whopping 103 career goals for his four senior clubs in a total of 201 matches. Wow. So that is over one goal per game as a professional. You can see why the potent striker is in-demand. Of course, he fired Napoli to the Serie A title thanks to 26 goals in 2022/23.
At present, CFC are making do with Nicolas Jackson and the hope that Armando Broja becomes who he could become. Is that enough for the team’s aspirations? Arguably not. The English capital outfit have reportedly been flirting with the idea of capturing an eminent attacker to lead their line. Might Osimhen be the right choice? If you ask me, he or Ivan Toney have the feel of being Blues-level quality. Daily Mail suggest that Stamford Bridge is the Nigerian’s ‘most likely destination’.
Chelsea aim to acquire winger Assane Diao of Real Betis after approaching 18-year-old’s family – PoL’s verdict
Diao has caught the eye in La Liga this season. So much so that the teenager is attracting interest from very large organisations around the footballing world. It is those displays for Betis which have attracted the west London side. CFC are said to be ‘keen‘ on the Senegal-born Spain youth international.
PoL see this prospective move as exactly the type of deal that modern Chelsea FC wish to complete. In fact, Diao is the exact profile the Blues appear to covet. Prudently, as well as tellingly, bosses from Benito Villamarin Stadium are attempting to crowbar a higher costing release clause into the top prospect’s contract.
