Chelsea are reportedly ready to pay whatever it takes to land the signature of Victor Osimhen in the summer transfer window.

The Nigeria international is also a player of interest to Manchester United but the Red Devils may be put off by the striker’s asking price, with Napoli valuing him in excess of 100 million euros.

According to The Mirror UK,  Chelsea are ready to rival Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain for the powerful hitman’s signature as they look to continue their big spend under their new co-owners.

Having already splashed out £600million since Todd Boehly and his consortium arrived at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are prepared to markedly increase their spending by acquiring the 24-year-old Nigerian.

Money has not been an issue at Chelsea under the new ownership of Todd Boehly, with the American businessman sanctioning the deals bringing Enzo Fernández, Wesley Fofana and Mykhaylo Mudryk to Stamford Bridge.

The three players cost a combined transfer fee of 301 million euros if performance-related add-ons are included.

Osimhen’s name has been logically associated with several high profile European clubs on the back of the outstanding season he’s having at Napoli, scoring fourteen goals in sixteen appearances to top the Serie A scoring charts.

The 24-year-old, who joined Napoli for a a club-record fee of €70 million, will enter the last two years of his contract in July 2023.
