Chelsea prepared to trigger Osimhen release clause

Chelsea have made Victor Osimhen their number one target and are prepared to trigger the Napoli striker’s ₤112 million release clause.

However, the news that Kylian Mbappé will definitely leave PSG when his contract finished at the end of this season has thrown a major spanner in the works of their plans.

The Paris club have reportedly identified Osimhem as the ideal replacement.

 And with PSG able to offer European football, which barring success in one of the cup competitions, which Chelsea cannot, it is difficult to see why the Nigerian would choose West London over Paris.

That could lead to Chelsea pivoting to other options like Ivan Toney or Brighton striker Ewan Ferguson. Neither will come cheap either, but Toney at least will be available with Brentford manager Thomas Frank admitting he is likely to leave the club this summer.
