Chelsea has not been able to find a clear top striker since Didier Drogba. It seems like a solution has been found recently.
British media ‘The Sun’ reported on the 2nd (Korean time) that “Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is paying attention to two strikers in the winter transfer market in January.”
One of them is Victor Osimhen, a Napoli striker who is attracting attention all over Europe. Osimhen scored 64 goals in 104 games for Naples. He was the top scorer in Italian Serie A last season with 26 goals. It is no exaggeration to say that he, along with Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), was the biggest contributor to Naples winning the league title for the first time in 33 years.
Osimhen remained with the team despite many love calls this summer, but things have changed recently. Napoli uploaded a mocking video containing a racist message to its official channel regarding Osimhen’s missed penalty kick.메이저사이트
Of course, Osimhen had no choice but to be angry. Naples apologized for this, but the insincere message only increased anger.
He is more likely to hit the market due to this incident. Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are interested and even Chelsea is trying to join.
Chelsea needs a top striker like Osimhen. After Drogba, Fernando Torres, Romelu Lukaku, and Timo Werner attempted to become Chelsea’s top striker, but were unable to escape the reputation of being a hit and run. They want Osimhen to break the jinx of being Chelsea’s top striker.
Osimhen is not the only candidate. Brentford striker Ivan Toni is also being targeted. Tony also attracted attention by scoring 20 goals in the English Premier League (EPL) last season.
