Osimhen wants to join Chelsea – Mikel

By Daily Sports Nigeria on March 2, 2024

Former midfielder John Obi Mikel suggested that Napoli star Victor Osimhen ‘wants to come to Chelsea’ ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old Nigerian striker is widely expected to leave the Partenopei at the end of the season, having recently told the press that he’s ‘already decided’ his next step. He penned a new contract with Napoli in December that contains a release clause in the region of €120-130m.

Osimhen has been widely linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer, with a long list of possible suitors including Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Speaking at the Web Summit Qatar via Calciomercato.com, Mikel first discussed the links between Osimhen and Chelsea.

“I think there is genuine interest on both sides. I’m convinced that Victor wants to come to Chelsea, obviously he wants to follow in my footsteps and the Nigerian players who played for Chelsea, such as Victor Moses, Celestine Babayaro…”

 Finally, Obi Mikel discussed the other clubs interested in signing Osimhen this summer.

“He also has many clubs interested in him, such as PSG, Manchester United, but I am pushing, sending him messages, trying to make sure that there is only one club in his mind: the Blues!”
