The Premier League club is favored to strike a deal with Victor Osimhen, who is expected to leave Napoli after this season.

Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal are now leading the pursuit of Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, surpassing Chelsea’s earlier efforts to secure the Nigerian forward for the upcoming season.

Chelsea has been actively working to persuade Osimhen, viewing him as a key figure to bolster their performance. However, according to TEAMtalk, the player’s demand for a weekly salary of at least £200,000 has caused hesitation among Stamford Bridge officials, who are wary of disrupting their salary structure.

With Kylian Mbappe expected to depart for Real Madrid, PSG finds Osimhen’s salary demands within their budget and sees him as an ideal successor. Osimhen’s record of 72 goals in 125 matches over four seasons in Italy makes him an attractive option for the French giants.

Arsenal, aiming to bring in a top-tier striker, has also shown significant interest in the 25-year-old and is considering selling Eddie Nketiah to make room for a high-profile acquisition.

Napoli recognizes the likely exit of their star player, with club president Aurelio De Laurentiis acknowledging the situation as early as January.

“We knew it since last summer. We knew perfectly that he will go to Real Madrid, PSG or some Premier League team,” he said, according to Livescore.com.

The price for Osimhen is expected to exceed £100 million, which would result in Napoli making a significant profit from the sale of the Nigerian star.
