Victor Osimhen Next Club Odds: Chelsea 2/1 to sign Napoli striker this summer

One of the most coveted strikers in Europe at the moment, Nigerian hitman Victor Osimhen is once again being linked with a move away from Napoli this summer.

One wealthy club in need of a new striker in this summer's transfer window is Chelsea, especially when you consider the Blues were glaringly lacking a reliable goalscorer during a subpar Premier League campaign.

Acquiring a striker of the quality of Osimhen would be a real statement of intent from Chelsea ahead of next season, with the London club currently second favourites to be the Nigerian's team following the end of the summer transfer window.

Ligue 1 giants PSG are now favourites to sign the striker this summer at 7/4, with Chelsea second in the reckoning at 2/1.

With Osimhen's contract at Napoli not up until 2026, the Italians are under no pressure to sell one of their prized assets in this summer's transfer window.

Having fired Napoli to the club's first Scudetto since the days of Diego Maradona in 1990 with 26 goals in 33 Serie A appearances in the 2022/23 campaign, Osimhen is a much loved figure at Gli Azzurri.

However, following a pitiful defence of their Serie A crown this term, with Napoli set to miss out on any form of European football ahead of next season, the 25-year-old may be lured away from Italy this summer.

PSG currently appears the most likely alternative destination for the Nigeria international, with the Parisians in the market for a replacement for Kylian Mbappe ahead of his heavily mooted switch to Real Madrid at the end of this season.

A reliable goalscorer both in Serie A and the Champions League with Napoli, the Parisians may view the clinical Osimhen as the perfect successor to French icon Mbappe at the Parc des Princes.

Like their counterparts Chelsea, Arsenal are also reportedly in the market for a top level striker this summer with Osimhen likely to fit the bill for Mikel Arteta's side, but it is questionable whether or not the Gunners have the financial capability to broker this transfer.
